Why use the chair?  If you're an 8 foot ogre, you could use the innkeeper.

You swing the Innkeeper over your head, striking the drunkard hard.
The Innkeeper's skull shatters under the impact of the blow.
The Innkeeper is dead!

The drunkard hits you with a bottle.
The bottle shatters as it strikes your head.

You swing the corpse of the Innkeeper in a wide arc, missing the drunkard.

The drunkard hits you with a broken bottle.

Etc...

Now watch the mess you make in a bar-room brawl...
