This is my second chair off the same plans I used before from Kevin Rodel. Much easier second time around!

Quarterd White Oak; pyramid pegs at top are made of Paduak.

Finish is TransTint Dye in water; semi-gloss poly on top.

Great looking chair. What Trans Tint dye did you use and what was the ratio if you don’t mind me asking?

Max I used the Transtint dye “Golden Brown”. Ratio? Nothing I measured…added enough til I got at least enough color to make a good tint to the wood – wish I could be more exact! A good starting point might be a cup of water, and 5 drops of dye. Try it, let it dry; if it doesn’t add all that much color, add 3 more drops, try again, and so on.

Dye, I find, colors wood so very evenly!

-- Have a blessed day!

Seems as though you were definitely on a mission. Very impressive—did you do the upholstery as well?

Great job, How many are you planning on making? Are they going to be a set? I will be making a cherry table our dinning area and plan on making 4 or 6 chairs. I like what you have done. How can I get the plans?

Patrick, great job on the chair, I’m about to try one myself. Saw them in FWW when the article came out. As soon as I’m done with the project I’m on it’s next. If you have any advise please let me know. Again, great job.
