Begin by making a pattern for the chair sides. The sides of this chair also function as the rear legs and are the real foundation of the chair. You can use heavy cardboard or 1/4-in.-thick plywood for the pattern. Though plywood is obviously more difficult to cut than cardboard, the advantage of using it is that it is easy to make fine adjustments to the shape using sandpaper and a block plane. With cardboard, once the pattern is cut, it's difficult to adjust. Trace the shape on the pattern material, and cut it out. Take the completed pattern and trace it on the side blanks.
