Great looking desk and chairs. They make a nice set. The chairs look very challenging. How were they to build? Did you draw them up yourself or get the plans somewhere? The joinery would cause me to do a good bit of head scratching.

Hmmm lets see,no plans to be found,no drawings cause I did’nt feel they were totally needed well I didnt feel like drawing them, but upon researching them and looking to purchase them I did get alot of measurements thru that,Height ,width depth.So with that info I was able to get my tags,So let the jigs begin.arced glueing jig for the bottom and arms. template jig for the seat after splining seat joints. shaper jigs for the backs.drilling jigs for the slats(dowels) . I’d say the backs were the hardest parts 4 different shaper jigs that were kinda scary,kinda built a ply wall between my hands and the bits ,all bits had 4” bearings and throw on yer motor cycly helmit and go for it wooooo hooooo,LOL

Those look really nice. The colors of the desk work well together.

Well, there’s no tipping these over if you’d had a few too many. Nice and sturdy. I like the Claro Black Walnut accents on the desk. Very impressive.
