I handcarved dovetails for this desk chair. The reclaimed pine comes from my family farm. We had an old bull pen I used to build the chair.(and the door in the back ground) I originally built the chair for a furniture store that had log desks but no chairs. So I used a simple design to match the existing furniture. The store went out of bussiness so I guess now i need to build a desk and FIND a buyer! The swivel I bought from vandykes and later found for half the price through rockler. Always striving to be a better woodworker than i am a bussiness man!
