Curved chair back rungs cut from solid woodIn this article I showed how to bend the wood to make curved ciar back rungs by bending oak in a kitchen oven.
The other alternative is to cut them out of a piece of solid wood.
But before cutting the curve with a bandsaw, it's important to cut the tenons on the end while the piece is still straight.
Here I'm using the pantorouter to cut the tenon. I already had it set up for that when I cut the tenons on the ends of the curved pieces. But with the workpiece still a straight piece, a tenon jig would work as well.
And that's all there's do it. This shape is easier to make than the tapered rungs style shape that my dad's mostly used for back rungs on his chairs.
