If you haven't yet read part one - access it here at https://arwensmeanderings.blogspot.com/2020/11/building-kentucky-stick-chair.html and it gives the links to the two websites I found most helpful and from which I got the dimensions for the chair.
This is my first attempt at a Kentucky Stick Chair and I am fairly pleased with it. There was odd bits of 'tear out' on the base of one or two of the holes I drilled - which had to be filled in with natural colour wood filler. probably because my drill bits were not sharp enough and because I didn't support the base of the piece being drilled sufficiently.
When you have assembled all the pieces and sanded them smooth, then do a dry run construction to make sure everything is in order before you start staining.
Assembly of all the pieces looks complicated but it isn't really. It just requires some systematic thinking, a slow pace and regular self checking.
Assemble the various pieces as above. Now I used 12mm sisal instead of wire rods. I taped over the cut ends with electrical tape for a depth of around 5 cm which made them easier to insert into and pull through the drilled holes. You need a flat area to do this, either a large work bench or a clean floor with an old duvet on it to protect the untreated wood.
The two diagrams below show the initial assembly steps in a slightly different way. Don't worry about how long the sisal ends are, you will trim and whip these at the very end of the final assembly. Just make sure that you cut the sisal to a length that leaves around 10" at each end (as you will need to give things a very firm pull to tighten and bunch sticks up at the end).
As you can see below, the chair started to take shape.
