Here is my take on the Prairie Chair. Material is quarter sawn white oak. Finish is General Finishes Vintage Cherry. The project is also completely made using the Festool Domino. Will post additional pictures once the cushions come back from the upholsterer.

Very nicely crafted—they just look like they’re going to be comfortable when they get their cushions.

Very nicely executed! I like the clean lines of Mission style furniture.

Awesome job! I can’t wait to see it complete with the cushions.

What size dominoes did you use for the joints?

Wow. Amazing how you didn’t use a tablesaw or mitersaw on that. Purely Festool Domino. You, Sir… are a true craftsman.

Scootles, Good catch! I should have been a little clearer all the joinery was completed using the Festool Domino. The other tools used were a table saw, miter saw, router my dust collector oh and I believe that i also used my random orbit sander and some sandpaper. oh and some glue. I think that is everything…

I also used my computer to draw the project using sketchup as well as s spreadsheet for a cut list and paper to print out the spreadsheet

Hope that helps
