Good day fellow LJs,
This chair was designed, built and named after my eldest daughter. The seat is carved from a single slab of ipil. The seat is hand gouged and so with the bottom side. The legs are sculpted from molave (Philippine teak) while the stretchers are dungon (iron wood). The crown is curly molave and the arm rests are also fashioned from ipil. The back splat is made from laminates of ebony. The back rest flexes as with some of chairs that I designed. So far it is one of my most comfortable chairs. Having a short back rest, it supports and flexes right around your lumbar area.
All woods used in this chair are reclaimed as with all of my projects.
Have a fantastic weekend guys!
