It’s been a while since I posted a project. Well, that because I’ve been meddling with this commission over a year!;-)
I made this set for my Aunt and Uncle. The idea was kicked around at Thanksgiving a couple years ago. It took us awhile to come up with the design, but I really like how it turned out. The two-tone approach with the walnut and cherry make the piece in my opinion.
I could blab more about it, but the entire build is blogged in the tutorial page on my blog:
I think blogging and posting updates on facebook made the entire process fun for my Aunt and Uncle. And, I think it gave people an idea just how much work an undertaking like this is!
Very rewarding experience. There is a table leaf so then can downsize later. Also, other custom features like captains chairs with lumbar support for my uncle, and regular chairs for my aunt. I can’t wait to put it in their home. Questions and comments always welcome.
The Big, to the Red, to the Knothead
