The inspiration for this chair was the early tall back chairs of the last century. Very gestural sweeping sketching was how this chair was conceived. The back walnut bent-laminated “wings” are joined at an angle with a shaped insert. The whole assembly tilts back 5 degrees adding more interest to the single plane bent “wings”. The through round tenons of the front legs, wedged with ash, are intended to send your eyes soaring up to the ash insert and then up further to the tips of the “wings”. A shaped ash stretcher ties the base together. The finish is Waterlox.
I built this chair in my fourth semester at Red Rock’s Fine Woodworking Program.
