You have done great credit to a grand design and what must have been a daunting build.

OK I have both saved a picture of this to a wood working file and made this my first “Add to favorites” Lumberjock’s file. What type of glue did you use if you plan on really putting this outside?

The lamination’s are very well done. I can understand you having resaw blues with this!
What a great project to tackle, and very, very well done!

Very nice job. Mahogany sets off the project quite nicely. I did a pair in reclaimed redwood. How long did it take you? It took me about 5 months off and on. Everyone who sits in one likes them. Much more upright seating and easier to get out of.

I have always been impressed with this chair after seeing the video series on FWW. Your build compliments this chair. Michael would be proud. Well done. I too added to favorites.
