... Or as my friend put it: “This is always a chair – not occasionally.”

This piece didn’t need too much work: it was dirty, missing its seat, and just had some Garage Grime on it. It was made in 1997 (not by me!) and used interesting square pegs to hold it together. Twenty years later, it’s still an incredible stable structure. The color was stripped and re-done in Dark Walnut. A couple of coats of shellac and a quick paste wax job finish it off. A new cushion was made and covered in striped fabric.
