This is a chair that I built a few years ago in a Chair Design class at the University of Cincinnati School of Design. It consists of two massive Walnut glue-ups connected by a heavy-duty finger joint. I created a 3D file for the tufting effect, and had the blocks cut on the schools new CNC Router. The buttons were made by hand and applied y hand. The base and arm supports are poplar wrapped in hand dyed leather to complete the material reversal. All in all there are 16 mortise and tenon joints, and the piece weighs a hundred pounds or more. Despite how it appears, its actually quite comfy.
