Curtis Buchanan put up a wonderful video series on how to make his “Democratic chair” with only ten tools. As Curtis puts it:

Definitely worth a look if you have any interest in chair making. Kudos to Curtis for making this available for free. Open source woodworking is pretty cool.
hattip to Peter Follansbee, who just finished up his version
