I am very pleased with my design of these chairs. They are comfortable. The combination of willow and log have made a very usable sturdy chair. I’ve combined a dark stained hand hewn Alder with Coyote Willow and Knotty Pine Logs. The Chairs are a tall back design. The character of the dark Alder doesn’t show in the photos (Must be the photographer), but in person it makes a great complement to the pine. The pine is salvaged from the forest floor in area subject to forest fires due to the beetle kills. The Alder is a local (Idaho) wood. The Coyote Willow grows on my family farm.

I really like this set. It’s some of your nicest rustic work.

You must have a Logman tenon maker now.

Good Luck Dennis!

Beautiful!!

I really like the way the chair back spindles go past the seat into the leg stretchers!

Good Luck in the contest.
