This was my first mission style piece of furniture I’ve built. The rays in the oak didn’t pop as I would have liked, but overall, I was pleased with my first chair and learned a lot when I built the tables later.
I cut the foam myself and had my mother (yes, my mother) sew the fabric. I thought this way, when I pass it on to my daughter someday, she’ll know that it was a family project. :-)
All the mortises (40+) were cut by chisel. It was a lot of work, but gratifying, and I figured I should know how to do it that way before I used a Mortising Press.
