Here is another office chair that was just finished.I just got back from an art show in Indio CA and these office chairs seem well received I think there may be a decient market out there for these.They are fun to make the base is a liitle hard to cover all the metal with wood but I think otherwise the chair would not look as good.
Thanks for looking

Ooooooh! Wowwwww!

I’ve gotta try my hand at chair making – guess I’ll start with a stool and work up from there!

As we have come to expect from you, Scott. Really nice crispy design lines and great color and finish. They should sell like hotcakes.
