My first shot at building a chair and foot stool. I only took one picture during the build. I should have taken more, I will next time. I’ll even use a camera and not an iphone.
I used white oak, but added walnut for the leg caps on top of the arms and the corbels.
I don’t like leather cushions. Cold in the winter and sticky in the summer. These are covered in a heavy material my wife had left over from one of her sewing projects. Very comfy. I replace a worn out recliner.
My wife wants me to build her a chair just like mine, but with a glider platform. When I do hers I promise to take more pictures.
I welcome any comments, good or bad. Always easier for a third party to see mistakes.
Thanks for looking.
