Made of cherry and walnut, this is my first sculpted chair. Also my first time with the maloof joint.
Finished with a mix of BLO, poly and mineral spirits. I milled the cherry myself about 3 years ago.

Thanks for looking.

Minimalist cool with Maloofian lines. (is Maloofian a word?)

Well done, Scott. Now you have to make a set. :-)

JayT, thanks.
kaerlighedsbamsen, not my design. It is a spin-off of Scott Morrison’s tea party chair.
Shane, Kevin thanks.

Awesome Chair! I love the design and execution. Joinery and grain selection are top notch.

What a lovely chair and what wonderful work you have done.
Even better that you milled the wood your self!
So cool Scott.
Best thoughts,
