    Great blog – glad to see someone focusing in their local area. I’ve found one free modern chair furniture plan (and lots of others) at Plan Canvas (http://furnitureplans.plancanvas.com//index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=66&products_id=182)
    Another place for modern furniture plans is http://modernfurnitureplans.net
