Here is my Writing Arm Chair based on Curtis Buchanan’s patterns and instruction. It’s been sitting waiting for paint since last summer and I finally got red milk paint, then black milk paint, linseed oil and wax on it. Very pleased how it turned out.

Beautiful work, not only the chair. . .but the photo. I like the dramatic sweep of the spindles.

stevo: Absolutely astounding. The spindles, so delicate, and so beautifully proportioned. The undercarriage is just delightful..bulbous and crisp turnings. Beautiful stance .. the chair begs to be used. grand craftsmanship. This is just STELLAR

Stevo, I am new to this site. In fact I’ve been trolling around for a few months just looking and reading. Your piece pushed me to sign up and sign in. The chair is so special. It would suit my wife perfectly. I would love to be able to build one for her when my skill level has progressed enough to consider approaching something like this. Is there a published plan?
