I apologize for the picture quality. They really don’t do this walnut justice . The chair was made from three sequential bastogne walnut slabs. I’m super happy with how it came out.

A big thank you to Hal Taylor and ofcourse Sam Maloof.

Thank you folks ! I will update with some good pictures of it in proper lighting. The pics here were only one coat of oil. The figure is incredible but the wood was a joy to work. I’m fortunate enough to have about 750 bd ft of this walnut in 8/4. They did such a great job kiln drying it properly they are remarkably flat and have very little if any tension etc.

Thank you folks ! The chair was a valentine’s day gift for my wife and she was thrilled . It took around 150 to 190 hours to make . I will get some updated pictures it has 2 more coats of finish and a coat of natural briwax since the pictures. I will by Friday get some updated close up pictures of the wood and chair in proper lighting. Thank you so much for all the kind words it means a lot to me. I was a long time member of another forum and the negativity turned me off. I’m happy to find an encouraging community here !
