The seat and back are burly red wood and the rest is cedar roots. This one really had some magic I worked on it off and on for a couple months, in no hurry and just let it evolve

Very Nice….everything fits just right…..I love rustic wood work. Excellent pic too…I can just see the folks on the beach wondering why this person is lugging this big chair down to the tide line….LOL…..just make sure you watch out for any rogue waves.

Absolutely stunning. Fit for a King. Although the back is spectacular, I like the seat the best. Gigantic assymmetrical slab. Really impressive.

Love it!! Wouldn’t mind seeing the other coast, my parents live on anisland in Maine. Absolutely beautiful, and would be a great place to get inspiration from. Beautiful chair!

This is beautiful. It would take more than a couple of months just to come up with the wood. Great job.

What kind of mind do you have that can let you tackle the joinery problems this project would pose? Is there a class in quantum woodworking joinery somewhere on the left coast? Absolutely cool project.
