New chair for 2017. My Z chair is modeled after a chair orginally design by Poul Jensen in the 1950’s . This cherry chair with maple back slats was built using some cherry lumber orginally sawn by my neighbor in 2001 . I had just enough to finish the frame of the chair but i did have to suppliment two pieces to build the seat platform. The chair was finished with a beeswax oil blend and will darken to a rich red color.

I like the use of the maple, sort of states that even the secondary wood is not secondary. “class”

It’s a very nice chair, the cherry and fabric certainly work well together. Two thumbs up for a job well done.
