Draw the general design of your vintage metal dining chair on the chart paper, even if the dimensions. Keep your first metal chair as simple as possible, with four even legs, one seat and one back. Cut four tabs from the plate action to empty space at the top and bottom of your chair legs. Place the legs in a clip to hold them firmly when welding the tabs to the legs.
Find a rounded template to track the shape of the seat. Mark the track on strips of sheet metal dining chair with a silver marker. Cut the chair seat out of strips of sheet metal with plasma cutter. Use an angle grinder to smooth the corners. Weld the seat to four legs. Cut three or four back rods backing off the rectangular tube with abrasive cutting saw. Cut tabs from the plate so that it fits over the hole in each tube. Cut a bar to lay over the back supports. Weld the backrest bars evenly to the seat, and then weld the upper bracket on the back support. Smooth any uneven edges with a mill. Paint the chair if you want with a water-based industrial group color.
