I made these chairs several years ago
I saw the design for them in a book and loved the look of them and thought i would make them

I used second hand jarrah from a house being demolished up the road

the chairs are so comfortable that I fall asleep in them if I sit for to long

I hope you enjoy

They look great! I think I might like to tackle a few ADK chairs at some point! What kind of finish did you use?

the finish was aurethane varnish that unfortunately hasnt stood up to the weather so I will have to strip them back and come up with a new idea as it is well known (of which i now know) that jarrah outside doesnt like varnish

These look very nice. I want to make some soon as well. Unfortunately there are so many of the “I want to make some of those soon” projects. I need to quit my real job!
