This is my first ever chair.
It was made during a 6 week course at – first two weeks spent designing and making mock-ups, then four weeks to make the finished product.
All timber is American Ash. The arms, crest rail and back rests are laminated in a vacuum press.
Now looking forward to making the rest of the set and a dinning table to go with it.

You should be extremely proud. It looks really comfortable -like it belongs at my dining room table in my spot, turned around so that everyone can see it when they walk in.
