This started started with the legs. Each “pair” of legs was originally 2 angled table legs made by a friend of mine. They were in a “7” shape. When my friend passed away, he donated his tools to my community Woodshop and these table legs came with them. I decided to turn the table legs into geometric chair legs.

The legs are reclaimed maple. The back is walnut and is on a swivel which adjusts to your posture.

The seat is apholstered with a wooden textile I created. I took hundreds of tiny wood triangles and adhered them to leather.

This really is a great chair. Extreme creativity. Excellent craftsmanship. The photos do not do it justice. I’m thinking it’s a WOW piece.

Has a mid-century modern studio feel, I like it. Very creative.

I like everything about this project. Very unique and interesting to look at. The seat fabric is awesome also. I like how your ingenuity was put to use. How did you come to your design idea?

The wooden textile is defiantly outside the box of traditional thinking. I like the extreme creativity and excellent craftsmanship.

Genius in design. Would love to hear how you were inspired to it all.
