I made this chair in December 2006 at The Windsor Institute. After I posted my C-Arm chair, I realized that I had not posted this little beauty, and since I sit in it at my desk paying bills – all the time it seems like – I figured she deserves to be seen by all of you lumberjocks. Its finished with milk paint, chocolate brown over salmon and several coats of Danish oil. This chair is based on one originally built in New York City around 1780-1790. The seat is dramatically shaped, very deeply scooped out. The S curve on the sides cuts in almost 2”, making the shield shape highly visible. To repeat myself, I like this chair and I enjoyed making it, especially the seat.
