I hadn’t been out in my shop in years. In fact finding my shop buried under stuff was a challenge but I was sort of going through wood sites and such and came across Chris Schwartz blog post on the Roorkhee Chair and suffered a case of the “I WANTS!”
So just about the time the magazine came out at the end of 2012, I excavated enough to get to my lathe and table saw and found a piece of walnut sitting ignored for ahem years. I bought the dowels (two have broken so I am going to turn some replacements) and the tenon cutters as the article recommended. I had read in one of his blog posts about him not feeling the need for the bottom let strap in the front and back so left that off. I need to go back and add that.
For the seat leather, I just used the natural hide that I oiled. I need to redo the arm straps and such but overall it works fairly well and for not having made anything in the shop for years I am pretty happy with it.
