Good luck Steve!
Afterwards, you can use it for the world’s fanciest Barbie chair. ;-)

Great work! Looks awesome. They say that Barbie has everything but I bet she doesn’t have a chair that nice. Good Luck! Hope you win

This is really cool! I also thought it looked quite Roman (or Egyptian). It reminds me of a throne.
I am with the rest when I say that this one looks like a winner. No silliness here. This was some serious woodworking. I loved to see that lathe work. The lathe always fascinates me. Good luck with the competition. You are going to blow them all away! :)

That looks like a comfortable chayer. I’d like to sit in that chayer. Looks like it would be soft on the buttocks!Nice chair Steve! Hope you win buddy! Good luck!

@ Dennis: What can I say, other than you are nuts. But in your honor, let’s go with the Viking theme.
@Sheila: It really is fun to use my lathe. I wish I could come up with more uses for it! Yeah, I try to avoid these types of videos. I’m not sure what people can learn from them. I shot this a couple months ago and have been saving it for a week when I hadn’t completed a project.
BTW, here’s the actual chair. My dad sent me this ad a long time ago and I tried to copy it.

I’m sure I saw an original of this in the Royal Ontario Museum marked as second century BC Roman.
