Say hello to Tony. This chair was named after my wife’s grandfather. The dude was quite the craftsman (I couldn’t hold a candle to most of his work). He built homes in the Kansas City area and was the first contractor in that area to use a nail gun (fun fact for ya).
Anyways the chair is made from Bolivian Rosewood. It was the first and only time I will work with the lumber because it turns out I’m super allergic to it and it is pretty pricey. Its kinda sad because the wood is really just amazing to look at (and it gave me a serious case of hives haha). The spindles are laminated and I spent a lot more time with a rasp than i normally do on a chair. I finished the chair with 5 coats of Maloof oil.
