This chair that is sort of a hybrid of a Harvey Ellison design and a Stickley chair that I have built earlier. As the title suggests, I am to be a first-time grandfather soon and I’m proud to say that I made the deadline.
It’s Q-sawn white oak, pegged mortise and tenon joinery, with a suede leather seat cushion.
All the curved pieces were steam bent, and the finish was fumed in a tent for 4 days (we wanted it dark) After rubbing in some Pure Tung oil, I finished it with General Finishes Arm-R-Seal satin topcoat.
It worked out to be pretty comfortable and the son and daughter-in-law are pleased…so that’s all that matters.
