In conjunction with Peter Galbert’s “Chairmaker’s Notebook,” we will soon be offering full-size plans of the two chairs shown in the book.
The plans were hand-drawn by Peter at full scale. I’ve been scanning and piecing together all the bits, trying to produce them on the fewest sheets possible. It is taking me longer than I expected.
I don’t have pricing information or a release date yet. We will be using a print-on-demand service to produce and mail them, and I am still working out some details with that company.
So stay tuned.

I hope they are ready before I take his class in June. Wayne Merhoff
The plans look great. Very detailed. Doesn’t surprise me considering the illustration for the book.
A bit off topic.
I love that you can use the bog oak for a project like this.
It looks great and seems appropriate regarding the time of origin for such a table.
I am hoarding the stuff you and your father gave me, using tiny bits and pieces on things that are very important to me. Thanks again for the very generous gift.
I tried to build a try square using the bog oak, but I think the tree grew on a hillside; it has significant tension in it. So I have been using the wood for tool handles and details such as this. Nothing goes to waste. The off-cuts from this patch have been saved as wedges.
Will they be rolled (so suitable for framing) or folded for sending?
That would make a really cool t-shirt
Chris: Check this out. Think it will generate some excitement at Handworks,
