ALoha!

This is a ” set” of twelve chairs, same design family but with variations. Doing 12 chairs is not only tedious, but I don’t care all that much for the sameness factor. These chairs vary in height , width, and backrest detail. I wanted them to feel like the keys on a piano and have kind of a visual rhythm going around the ginormous table . So far so good. the client loved the idea and these were shipped today!!! All in Hawaiian Koa. I’ll post the rest of the job when I get another chance.

Amazing. The variations compliment each other so well. Someday, I hope I’ll have the guts to try chairs.

Well,, blooipr,, They take long enough to where you don’t want to do chairs again for a while. I have pattern jigs for the main components to keep things consistent, but there’s a LOT of hand fitting that just takes time. I’d have to guess that there’s about 20 hrs in each of the side chairs. There may be more but I don’t want to know about it.

thanks for all the comments, these are going to some great people in California. I’ll post the table next.
