Made of Elm and finish with linseed oil, shellac and a poly top coat. The joints in the chairs are based on Sam Maloof styles. The back rest pivots to be always on the “sweet spot” against the lower back.

The Elm is finally ageing enough to use. Some great looking wood. My chunk is still sitting in the shop, a small split on one end.

A great design. Nice job Ze’ev.

Very attractive combination that looks just right in it’s setting. I like the idea with the chair back. The wood and the finish look great as well.
