Mesquite Hornback chair-This is one of the reasons I have not been on LJ for a while had a decent size order of this style chair to complete. Not complaining though!!! This chair out of mesquite with desert ironwood, has handshaped horns, faux leather upholstered seat, handshaped arms and back lumbar support. I incorporated a nice finger joint where the seat meets the leg and arm. This is a typical Texas chair.

For fear of stating the obvious, there’s not much us ordinary woodworkers can say when shown a piece of art like this. So I’ll simply say thanks!
