This is a follow up project to the Greene & Greene office furniture I built last year. Needed a round meeting table and chairs. While the chairs definitely are in the same style, the table is a little more modern and came about by just some tinkering with veneers and a desire to try and do a sunburst.
Details:
Chairs – claro walnut, inlaid ebony plugs, inlaid mother of pearl details on back slats.
Table – birdseye walnut veener top. Table rim and base – claro walnut.

Very nice, and where did you find that wonderful upholstery to go with it?

Thanks for nice comments.

Ed – I’ve always loved southwest type designs – it’s all over our house.
I found the fabric at: http://www.strictlysouthwestern.com/fabrics.htm. It’s the “Comanche” style.
To upholster the seats I used a poplar frame, webbed it, and used a 1” polyurethane foam covered with batting and muslin. I may redo the seats with a thicker (or denser) foam. Isn’t giving me quite the padding or durability I want.
