making chairs is a whole new ball game compared to making most other woodworking projects.

Great looking chair!! A true testament to your abilities as a carpenter! What a great feeling of satisfaction when you buld one of these. I have had the pleasure of being able to take classes with The Guru Himself. He is a great guy with a great passion and one hell of a teacher. The Continuous Arm was the last class that I took this past August. Enjoy your chairmaking!

Michael, making that chair from a book is a great job! Very well done! I keep telling myself that if I ever slow down, that is going to be the second chair I tackle…Sam’s rocker is first.

Great Job. I’ve got plans but haven’t had the cahones or just, I know it’s gonna be hard. But one of these days.
