Mid century style reading chair in mahogany delivered earlier this week. Love the fabric choice my customer chose for the cushions . The chair is mortise and tenon construction . finished with tried and true varnish oil. So far for 2015 I have made and sold 5 of these chairs

yea that is a beauty, i wanted to ask if its solid wood under the cushions or some type of webbing, , i really like the foot stool as part of it, after a long day a guy wants to put his feet up…thanks for the extra picture of the walnut chair.

one other question john, is there another slat behind the back cushion, otherwise it looks like the cushion would fall out…

Elastic webbing on the seat platform eliminates the need for springs.4 slats in the back

Grizz,

That was waaaaaaaaay before MN and my too many cats! My sister had a Dainish modern living room when she got married. When they were buying new stuff I got some of the old classics. Used the stuff when I went to school on GI bill.

Going out to try out a modified rough cut jig I put together.

Sorry John for my interruption.
