Hank Chair

Jory Brigham

Designed as a static lounge chair, the Hank Chair's sophistication lies in the details. The Hank appears in many of Jory Brigham Designs collections because of its versatility and variety of cushion options. This course will cover the upholstered cushion version. With 24 different joints, the chair is sure to be an interesting build. Jory primarily uses the Festool Domino for his joints but Marc Spagnuolo will provide supplemental content showing how to make the same joints using a router and traditional loose (slip) mortise and tenon joinery.
