These are the chairs that go with the previously posted large Dining table and Sideboard. My client likes G&G as well as Stickley and the dining room itself has a strong Stickley feel to it. The chairs are a bit Stickley and a bit G&G.

The entire project turned out fabulous. That looked to be one heck of an undertaking. I hope you were paid well for all that work.

Schloemoe – I have an upholsterer who did all the slip seats.

Dave – the arm chair ( measured at the front seat rail) is 2 3/4” wider than the side chair – the taper from front to back is exactly the same on both chairs.

Jason – yes, it was a long haul – lots of stuff taking up floor space in my shop for and extended period
