This is the newest piece in my signature line of work. It is heavy in the arts and crafts style. It is an original made of jatoba and walnut. I got the jatoba at a yard sale for $10 and the walnut was actually one single 4×8x12. Slight bow to arms. Has a matching back cushion and headrest, but looks better w/o.

I really like the style of your chair. How does the foot rest work?

Its a glider, not a recliner. That is the base underneath.

Rhett, this is a really nice piece of furniture. I enjoy the look of A&C pieces. On this piece there are enough m&t joints to make things interesting and not get too boring. I agree with you about the cushion and headrest. They just do not look right with this style of furniture.

Nice score on the bc too by the way. At $10 that was a deal that you could not pass up.
