CONSTRUCTION OF OFFICE TABLE AND CHAIRS

 

ABSTRACT

Office table and chairs usually come in set of three, and are designed to fit one into another for convenient storage. Furniture of this soot should be of the highest quality, attractive in design and capable of standing up to many years in use.

The cost of the wood and the amount of time spent on this project may restrict you to making one table only and the chairs. The design chiefly makes use of curved lines for the legs, the base and the lower back rails. The object is to produce stability with a high proportion of the tables weight gathered near the base and narrower lines at the level of the tabletop.

Each table and chair is made in four stages, firstly the two identical side sections are built, these are the fitted with two crosspieces at the  top and one at the bottom. Next, the table and chairs surface ground work is cut from plywood which fits into groves cut in all four top rails. Finally the top surface is made up of  the wooden block to tiles arranged in a pattern and fitted into the recess between the plywood and the tops of the table and chairs.

The table and chairs frame are assembled with mortise and tern joints. The plywood groundwork is fitted to the frame using housing joints. The woodblocks are butted together and guide down into the groundwork. The table and chairs differ mainly in respect  of their size and both the medium and small table and chairs are constructed to fit in sequence into the image table and chairs with the minimum of clearance. The only other difference is that the large and medium  table and chairs have narrow front top rails to allow for this clearance, the smallest table and chairs having the full rails in making one table and chair only, a full rail is used and one more lower cured crosspiece is added to close of the opening at the front.

A good quality wood should be used to bring about the best result , such as afromosia or Burmese teaks, but these hardwoods can be expensive. As an alternative, agba or Brazilian mahogany can be used. Old oak or mahogany maybe salvaged from discarded furniture such as old solid wardrobes and bed boards. This can be an excellent source of cheap tough quality wood but one has to be persistent in one’s search, schools sometimes get ride of old oak desks and classroom fittings and woods for construction can be chosen from there.
