This chair is one of my entries for the Texas Furniture Makers Show in Kerrville, Texas. The chair was constructed of air dried Black Walnut harvested in southwestern Arkansas. The chair design is a Maloof style low back settee. The seat has been coopered 3 degrees. The back leg posts are also angled in at the top 3 degrees. Finish is Maloof’s Oil/Poly.

Scott, you could always move to Texas so would be eligible for the show. I hope to attend the Texas Mesquite show in Fredericksburg myself someday.

I tried telling the show promoter more Texans live in Ruidoso NM than New Mexicans so that should count for something !!!!

Scott, I think some one at the Kerrville show last year mentioned that the would like to some day expand the show to adjoining states, but for now you could always visit the show to see how we Texans do it. I am sure you would fit right in if they expanded the show to allow New Mexicans to exhibit.

Dusty your correct, but the budget or time does not allow for a professional. I will take some pictures using a paper back ground made for photos before the piece goes to the show.

Beautiful. Is this just for show or will it actually hold 2 people. Imagine that, a chair that too nice to sit on.
