This is the project that made me get to the next level of achievement in woodworking. I decided to buy a drill press and use a hollow point chisel to cut the many mortises this piece has; virtually every joint where two pieces come together is mortise and tenon; even the backrest slats are mortised into the rails.
I made this in 1989 or 90. I won’t tell you what the wood is, yet. Study it and you tell me what you think it is.
One screw is used in the whole assembly and that is to hold the center seat support to the bottom of the lower back rail. Everything esle is mortise/tenon/dowel.
