Going with the Grain

  Going with the Grain is about how to make a chair - simply and with tools you can easily obtain or construct for yourself.
 
In 1985, when Mike Abbott started running courses using the traditional tools and techniques of the Victorian chair-bodgers, many people said it was about time he moved into the 20th Century.
 
Following the success of his first two books Green Woodwork and Living Wood, Mike’s third book shows that he has now moved happily and unashamedly straight into the 21st Century. With the help of over 600 colour photographs he guides you, step-by-step, through:

  • The tools and techniques needed for cleaving, shaping and assembling a chair
  • Constructing a few simply homemade devices to aid the process
  • Making 2 stools and 3 chairs, each with its own unique character.

Going with the Grain is not written for cabinet-makers (although they are welcome to read it too) - the techniques described in this book have as much in common with cabinet-making, as does a jacket potato with haute cuisine. It is written for anyone who shares Mike’s passion for trees and wood and is interested in getting to know them better through the fulfilling process of turning a tree into their very own chair.
 

The structure of "Going with the Grain"

Going with the Grain falls into six sections:

  • Chapters 1-2 Background: a brief background to how this book came about;
  • Chapters 3-10 The bare necessities: the materials, techniques, tools and equipment needed;
  • Chapters 11-18 The wooden frame: construction of the frames for two stools and three chairs;
  • Chapter 19 Seating: a wide-ranging description of seating patterns and materials;
  • Chapter 20 Scrapbook: a collection of photos with ideas for taking your chair-making further;
  • Appendices Resources Lists with further reading and suppliers of tools and materials.
