It's Time for my Annual June Chair Build!

Yes, I still am doing the annual June Chair Build, and I humbly invite you to build a chair along with me.

Last year's June Chair build was an resounding international success, thanks to Aymeric, the only person I know who finished his chair.

Beautiful chair, Aymeric!

I never got past gluing up my seat blanks last year, and those are still in Munich. That means June 2016's chairs for me are yet to be built.

But, that won't stop me from making something else this year. I'm considering making something along the lines of a Bavarian country chair to use at my desk.

My chair likely won't be so rustic, but I think it is something I can easily do with my toolset.

Join in the fun this year! If you need a good excuse to get in gear and finally build that chair, here it is!

Let me know what you are doing, and I'll post your pictures. Over the last couple years, some really great chairs have been born due to this build, and nearly all of them took too long. It's all part of the fun!

  1. If I can get the stools done and come up with a design that I like, I may be able to play along.
    I'm excited to see what you come up with based on the above.

    1. Plan B would be to slack off on your stools until June, then be the first one done!

    2. LOL...I have a plan that I have been working on since the footstools. It is loosely based on the style you show above, but involves plywood and possibly paint. I may finally pull the trigger on it.

  2. Ha ha Brian, trying to entice people to slack off till June...
    But who knows, probably the best hope to finish in June ? :-)

    1. Plan C would be to finish them now, and call it last year's chair. Greg would still come in ahead of me!

  3. Really tempted to postpone current projects and jump on the chair-train! There is in fact a chair that I would really like to make. It involves three legs and some clenched nails. Hmm...

    1. I'm curious, now! Postponing a current project to start a June chair is right in the spirit of things!

  4. Sweet! Last year's build was really fun, even if I didn't actually build one... seriously though this year I am building one... seriously.

    I'm hesitant to commit to it, but I really like what Mark Hicks is doing with the 12 chairs in 12 months.

    1. At this rate I'll have to hurry to get twelve chairs done in twelve years!

      I liked your concept from last year. Will you try to build it, or do you have something else in mind?
