30″ × 24″ × 3/4" plywood (Qty – 5)
1/4″ × 3″ Screws with washer and locknut (Qty – 8 )
First, open up the Easel project and load the first plywood piece in your X-Carve. Carve out the parts using a 1/8" bit and when the machine is done remove the parts and sand off the tabs.
Repeat the same process for the other 3 workpieces.
You should have 4 parts that make up the legs, 4 for the hand rests and 4 for the back support. Additionally, you should have 8 rectangular pegs which we will use when gluing the parts.
First, take part 1 and 2 and apply glue to them and then lightly clamp them. Next, take a rectangular tab and apply a thin layer of glue on it, then using a rubber mallet hammer it into the rectangular hole. This helps to properly align the two pieces of wood and ensures they do not slide around when putting the clamps. Clamp them tightly and let the glue dry for 24 hours
Repeat the same process for parts 3, 4 and 5,6. Now you have completed one-half side of the chair.
Next, repeat the above steps but make sure the parts you’re now gluing mirror the ones you have already glued. Reference the picture below.
Place one set of legs on the table with the inner side facing up. Next, apply a thin layer of glue on the ribs (Part #7) and hammer it into the rectangular holes toward the top of the holes.
Next, place the other set of legs on the table with the inner side facing up. Apply glue inside the rectangular holes, filp the other set of legs hammer the ribs into the holes.
