Woodworking with Bill Gerold

  Bistro/Bar Table and Chairs Build - part 1 by Bill Gerold 1 of 22  


Sometime ago my wife had said it would be nice to have an outdoor Bistro/Bar Table and Chair set. Since our 43rd Anniversary is coming up I decided I will surprise her with one.


First I made a proof of concept chair seat which I still am pondering. I was happy with the overall dimensions and look so I am going ahead and building four more and then the table. The whole project will be unplugged.

After the prototype I went ahead and cut the legs, shaped the angles on the bottom and top and laid out mortises. Next I rough-sized all the support pieces for the top and bottom sections. Starting tomorrow I will be making the mortises, cutting the top and bottoms supports and, time permitting cut the tenons.

My initial set of tools.

Cutting 7 degree angle in the top and bottom of the legs.
