The last big project I can get out of the 6 pieces of walnut that I was given. This chair will go well with the bow-tie table and is being auctioned of at a local fire dept. fundraiser in Sept. The customer who bought the table has already told me she IS going home with it! It stands 32” tall, the seat is 16 1/2” high, and the chair, at its widest is 22”. I honed my chisel skills a little more on this chair…it has 5 maple bow ties and on the top corner of the back-board, I used a copper bow tie bent 90 degrees to cover an imperfection on that corner. Also had some compound angles on the joinery that was fun, fun, fun to figure out. It is finished with Howard’s wax and wet-wax sanded multiple times. Thanks for the looks and comments.

That’s a great looking chair! Simple and elegant—I can see why she’s taking it home with her!

That is awesome!

I like the way you tied the stretchers into the legs/back.

Like the chair design and love that you left the saw marks which add a special dimension to the overall look .
I bet you would love to have more of that great looking walnut .

Nicely done on the chair and the happy customer. Your use of the flow of the grain and the live-edge lines is well done. Thanks for sharing.

I like it. It has a “King/Queen” sort of look
