The very first chair I made, it’s made out of one Fir 2×4. I tried some new techniques like, bending the back rest and taking a torch to the wood. This came out a lot better then i thought it would. As i said i torched the whole thing, then i applied a coat of shellac, then top coated that with a thin oil poly finish. Took about one day to build. Tell me what you think, could i have done something better/differently.
Thanks for looking!
all comments welcome :)

Nice torched chair. It is pretty cool, in every way. Keep it up!

What a great idea. Nice use of wood that is often taken for granted. A real hot seat.
