The interior cloud lifts on the rear legs are shaped using both power tools and hand tools. However, after performing this operation, I realized that the use of a rotary tool may have made my work a lot easier. I’ll discuss that later. First, let me explain how I manufactured this detail.
Corner blocks on chairs serve two purposes. The corner blocks offer rigidity to the chair rails and prevent the rails from racking. They also provide a platform for the a seat insert to sit on. Since I’m using an upholstered plywood seat insert, I decided to place the top of my corner blocks 3/4” below the top surface of the chair rails.
