I’ve entered my Argyle chair in the contest. If you think it’s ‘fluid’ and you like its style, please vote for it.

When the project started I decided to take pictures from start to finish. Using curly purpleheart for the seat, rails and back and straight grained ph for the legs, it was a very interesting project, as it was my first chair and my first mortise and tenons- very exacting work! Enjoy the pictures!
