Back slats and arms were steam bent. The q-sawn white oak was fumed for 48 hours, then a few applications of oil followed by wipe-on poly. I think the arms in particular needed the poly because it’s too easy to place a cold beverage on them.
I did not make the cushions, but I DID upholster the foot stool. It’s not depicted in the pictures, but the seat frame has a woven upholstery webbing to support the seat cushion. It’s REAL comfortable.
I built it for my daughter who lives in Chicago, so I can’t enjoy it myself. Maybe I’ll make another one for me someday.
