I built this chair last summer at home. Very difficult with angled through tennons on the back legs. Made the cusions myself too. Overall fun project. One of the more challenging.

That turned out very nice. Does it have a stationary back or will it recline?

Nicely done. I built a similar chair last year so I can appreciate the work you put into this. In fact, I am sitting in it right now. I know I had a great sense of accomplishment when I brought mine into the house. I’m sure you feel the same way. Good job.

Yea, the back reclines. It has three different positions.
