Made from mostly 1 1/2” walnut lumber. The arms were steam bent. There was sweating and swearing involved when bending the Hickory!

Nice steam bent Arms! It’s amazing that you can bend walnut that thick. Nice chair all around!

That must have been something, bending those arms like that! Whatever the case, that’s a beautiful and unique looking chair, and looks comfortable, too!
