Memorial Day weekend project, started Friday May 28th – completed June 3rd.
Made this one out of Cherry with Walnut plugs. Decided to go with Cherry agian since I am able to aquire rough Cherry for $.90 a board foot. Started with the initial design inspired by Scott Morrison and decided to tweak it a bit to be more like a Maloof. I rounded over all the edges of the seat, curved the front of the seat, carved out the arms to fit the person, and added a curved head rest. Definitly more challenging than the last chair due to the design changes but also easier to complete since I have gone through the process before and I had all the templates.
Finish is Maloof poly/oil
Completion time ~ 25 – 30 hours
This one is for sale (having wife put out during yard sale to see if any interest)
Next is the Maloof inspired chair, seat, front and back legs complete already.
