Thank you.

The joints are integral tennons. I suppose loose tennons would have been easier but I wanted to try the angled tennons.

This is my favorite piece.

Very nice piece. Looking through the “old posts”. Very cool. Is this your own design?

WOW! Beautiful looking chair!

-- I love woodworking. Except sanding, gluing, cutting long stock, finishing, detail work, sawdust, the cost and loss of time. :)

I am glad that this one came up on my list. This is a gorgeous chair. Walnut is such a beautiful wood with which to work.

Thanks for the post.

I like the Walnut , but how many cushions do you need to sit on to get the chair arms out of your armpits ? It doesn’t appear to be anything that you could sit in comfortably for very long if at all . JMHO

Actually the chair is comfortable without any cushions. The angles and seat height make it comfortable.

Have your say...
