This is a Jakes chair that I built using plans that I found. It was a great project, gave me an excuse to buy a spindle sander and is super comfortable.

Thanks for the compliments. I used a red mahogany stain and finished it off with 3 coats of spar urethane. Getting between the slats is a pain though. In the future I may try and finish it as I assemble it.
