Philadelphia Furniture Workshop master class project from 2014. Rasp, spokeshave & carving tools used heavily. Carving 4 ball & claw feet was time consuming but fun.
Mahogany
A few brass screws
Green upholstery leather

12 coats of garnet shellac added great color.

Looking at your projects, they are all very nice.
I noticed your last post was around 4 1/2 years ago.
How long did the chair take you to make?

It came out very nicely by the way.
