I wanted to build these to be able to fit into several decors, from a formal setting to a Western style…. So the design was kept simple. I did some texture work on the backs to lend a little visual interest. They are finished with a spar varnish, oil mix. I am looking for the right leather to cover the seats. I have a real nice piece of embossed leather I was going to use, but I didn’t unroll it before I got it home. Sure enough they had cut a grub hole in it and I only had enough for one seat…. They, like everything we own around here are for sale!

Thanks Dan and all! These were my own design as is most of my work… I have since covered the seats with a Southwestern patterned fabric that I originally bought before I thought about the leather… I barely finished them when my wife walked in and laid claim to them!!!
