Very nice looking chair—simple and yet elegant!

Just a really cool chair. The dimensions are really pleasing to my eye and I love the contrast. Makes me think of coffee and caramel. I really like it.

Love the design, great work. Personally I am not a fan of using all different woods, I would have stuck with one species, but to each their own, plus it’s nice to get rid of small pieces.

Slider20, I understand your point, but this was my first “hardwood” chair. Next time for sure, walnut or cherry will come. Thanks your comment
