by Michael Fortune
DVD

The classic lawn chair made graceful and ultra-comfy. While the ever-popular Adirondack chair is comfortable enough for reading or relaxing, it can be difficult to get in and out of. Acclaimed furniture maker Michael Fortune redesigned this classic with better ergonomics, but didn_—Èt stop there. In Garden Chair, an instructional video, he walks you through every step of building his unique version, inspired by the graceful arc of daylily leaves in his own garden.

Master bent-lamination techniques. The first phase of this chair project is a complete lesson in bent lamination for creating the sweeping arms, the seat, and back slats. Expand your understanding of this process, as Michael shares all the secrets to success that he_—Ès learned over 40 years. You_—Èll see how he creates a sturdy, lightweight form, keeps the plies aligned, manages the clamping and gluing, creates a seamless bend, and more.

See a consummate artist-craftsman at work. Michael then goes on to demonstrate a variety of useful techniques for working with these curved pieces. Finally, you_—Èll see how he assembles the chair, levels the legs, and finishes it.

Create a thing of beauty! When built from weather-resistant wood, such as mahogany, white oak, hemlock or cedar, this beautiful garden chair will last for decades. It will invite you to relax in comfort and grace your lawn or garden with its lovely, organic shape.
