This is the completed chair I made during my class at the Appalachian Center for Craft. It’s constructed of all solid cherry with mortise and tennon construction. The back rest is a bent lamination with walnut plugs. Finished with three coats of Tried and True oil varnish.

This was a great experience and I can’t wait to start making more chairs!
