Hi all,
This is my best attempt at design and execution since I got into this lunacy! The timber is mahoghany throughout. The upholstery is all genuine leather it even has 1or2 imperfections of the hide visible which I like.

All the tenons are handcut. I designed this project from scratch and tweaked it as I went. The stretcher rails, which curve in 2 different directions at once are probably my favourite features.
The chair is very comfortable as i designed the seating position by tracing the curvature of my own spine onto a template so the backrest matches my back perfectly! Lots of others have tried it and found it very comfortable also.
I used top class cushion foam and it takes the shape of the person sitting on it.
I hope all the work was worth it. I just thought I’d share it with others who might appreciateit. Thanks for looking, any comments, feedback or pointers welcome.
:D

Very nice work, chairs aren’t easy, especially when you design them yourself, great work!

excellent design and execution… shouldn’t you have a matched set of six to go with a matching dining room table? Obviously you have the talent for such an undertaking.
