This was my first “big” project. I used mortise and tenon joinery, and also did the upholstery myself. Very fun and I plan to do another one.

The chair looks great. The grain is fantastic and you did the upholstery yourself. Thats impressive. Welcome to Lumberjocks.

Very nice work. A companion chair is a good idea—along with a footstool or two.

Red oak? or white?
