It came out nice. I have been watching you blog it. Is it the first of a set?

No orders so it’s just a prototype to see how this sortof thing might turn out. I’m just working on chairsfor portfolio pieces in order to market to high-enddesigners. It’s working. One fellow found online andapproached me has me bidding on some chair designs he wants built.
My plan is to have some of these sample pieces to take around and show what I can do with steambending. My goal is to focus only on furniture andnot do any of the plywood/MDF box type stuff, casework. I want to do more chairs, tables, curved forms, tansu, more veneering.

Hi Loren..I think your chair looks interesting and a good start on a “signature design” series. Can I voice one complaint? your chair deserves better pictures. Even if they are just up against a bare wall..all the shop stuff in the background is soooo distracting. (I take horrible pictures too, so I am guilty myself..I only have an 89.00 digital) When you work that hard, you need pictures commensurate with your skills.

yeah, I know. This is just temporary. I’m going to makea few more of these sample pieces and do a pro shoot.
We all know here what a messy process woodworkingcan be. I have a wall on my shop with a big panel saw onit I can clip a backdrop to for better pictures but it has a bunchof heavy machinery sitting if front of it and I was tootired to want move all that to set it up.

That turned out really well. And I know it was a lot more difficult to build than it’s simple design would indicate!
