I saw plans for this chair in Popular Mechanics years ago, and finally built it last year. It’s made of oak that was scrap wood from a jobsite I worked at awhile back. The cushions are pig leather from a boot manufacturer here in Michigan, which I got for free. The spindles are joined together with dowels, and the seat frame is screwed to the spindle frames. The plans called for a steel rod to hold the back frame, but I chose a brass one to jazz it up a little. It’s finished with polyurethane. It’s very comfortable, in fact I’m writing this on my iPad while sitting on it. Hope everybody likes it.
