This is pretty cool. I got the idea from a web site here in boston , but the over all is mine!!!!!!!!! The first few picture are unfinished and the last is a section of the leg. 90% of the corner removal has been by hand with a file and sand paper.

I like the sculptural attempt on this. I think you could keep pushing the design with more unusual 3 Dimensional shapes and make some interesting versions of this chair. Keep pushing that envelope!

The next one is going to be different!!!! It is pretty comfortable. The curve near the lower back curve needs to be more exaggerated . This is 100% recycled wood also. The Mahogany is from some old decking the pine is drawers from a dresser and the rest is cutoffs.

Awesome design! Does it creak at all when you get in and out of it?

Cozmo. No it does not. It does flex quite a bit side to side so an uneven floor is no match for it! It is very strong linearly though.

Reminds me of a stripped down version of this Moser Studio chair.
