That is a fine looking chair. A level of project I have not attempted. I’m impressed.

Good looking chair(s). The joinery on the arm rest looks interesting as well as attractive.

Scott,
I note with considerable interest the Green and Green design influence. Nice details and nice touch. If you’re interested, check out the green and green yahoo group. I’m a member. Max

Top notch woodworking! The green is a great contrast.

I Guessing since no one else is asking, I’m the only one that hasn’t seen or knows what the green is. What exactly is it and how do you apply it?

Is that real turquoise? Is it ground and then mixed with some kind of epoxy? how do you level it with the wood?
