Mesquite Green & Green dinning chairs-It’s been a while since I have been on LJ I have spent the last two weeks trying to complete this table set. I told the customer I would get it to them by Christmas now looking back it was an unrealistic deadline. I basically did nothing but stay in the shop all day for the past two weeks. But I kept my word and in this business I think that is a BIG thing to do.It was all worth it though. I delivered it up to Golden CO yesterday (barely missed the huge snow storm). The customer actually started to cry so, that kinda gave me a warm fuzzy. Anyway the chairs are out of Mesquite with Turquoise inlayed in the natural cracks.The design is based from a Green & Green “Blacker House Chair” that the customer had seen.The table I will post next.

See the table that went with the chairs

Nice set of chairs. I bet they look great with the turquoise inset. I’d cry having to give them to the customer.

Great chair Scott. Nice to have you back.

How many chairs did you make?

That is really a great chair, Scott. Excellent philosophy as well. We worked all day yesterday on an install for the same reason. I promised it by the first of the year. Again, I really want to see the new photos.
