This started out as a western big leaf maple side chair, one of 5 that I had cut up into parts years ago and stuck back in a corner waiting to get to.
This is a shot of one of the original side chairs at a show in Roseburg Oregon called “Sticks and Strands” that featured woodworks and tapestry’s and woven artworks.
I made 2 up and the others sat for about 6 years before I pulled out the parts and got back to this one. I wanted to have some fun with it so I made the soda pop back slat from sapele. I then put on some sapele socks and inlayed the dots in the backrest.
It is very comfy and sculpted. Some behind the scenes pics before the chair was altered and the shop had the cabinets.
