This office chair was made from Juniper (Forest Reclaimed wood) and goes with the “Wild Spirit” Horse Desk. I inlayed turquoise into the chair to blend in with the turquoise on desk. The chair design is based on a Maloof Low Back chair, but I have made quite a few of my own design changes. A leather seat was used to give the chair a little more western flair and to blend better with the dark on the desk legs. The chair mechanism I used, adjusted up and down, tilted and swiveled. I handshaped the wood over the mechanism to disquise all the metal and to make it look more artistic.

I would never get any work done at that desk! Heck, it would take a long time to get over standing back and admiring it. Well done!

The chair and the desk look nice. Lots of creativity involved.
I will say that the walnut office chair with the mesquite lumbar supports is still my favorite in the office chair catagory.

Thanks for posting.

I know this project has been on LJ for a while, but if your still active Scott, where do you source the mechanism’s from?
