Beautiful piece Charles. I am sure your mother had very little to hide.

I can’t see the chair? It is hiding under that horrible fabric that your mom picked. LOL Take off the cushion and take some more pics so we can see your chair. :) I am positive the chair does not need to hide.

Looks good to me. Nice to see some color added rather than the old plain covering. Nice job!

Excellent chairs, actually floral is not a womans pattern. Although I bet you were leaning towards a more classic brown leather. I’m sure mom has the best (and only) hand built chair in the neighborhood!!!!

Well, the arms look nice and so does the front, but I have to agree with rivergirl. How about a side shot and one with the cushions off?

great job…I loved the whole blog…congrats on being done!

Charles you should add a link to the blog in the project description area and say something like: “If you would like to see how I built my chair check out my blog for more details.”

Just an idea…it would be nice for people who join later and stumble across your chair down the road.
