I’ve always wanted to make a chair with natural sticks. This was my first attempt. The legs, rails etc are Australian Blackwood saplings, the seat and backrest is Yellow wood. I harvested the saplings in the woods next to my shop, the live edge Yellow wood pieces were fall out from the sawmill. In other words, the timber cost me nothing. No glue, screws or nails were used. It is assembled with round through tenons and wedges.

Very impressive – great job!

I wish you could share some close up shots that would give us a good view of the through tenons and wedges.

How did you finish it?

I agree with Rich, more photos please. This one looks great. Nice design and I am always a fan of no hardware.

Beautiful work Div. It strikes me as a slightly refined rustic look. Interesting design too. I like it a lot.

Cool chair, I too would like more photos, particularly of the joints, and how you attached the seat. The wood selection is beautiful.
