Designed to compliment the Morris Chair built a few years back. Design on the fly with some nice QSWO that I had in my stock pile.

Thanks for the comments. No plan – not even a formal design. I based it loosely on the Mission Chair built a couple years back from a Wood magazine issue. I was going to do a Sketchup plan but started cutting wood instead and never looked back. The proportions are okay which is usually the problem I run into when designing my own furniture – tends to look boxy at times. I am happy with this piece and it should move into the house in the next few days.

Very nice, especially since you designed it. Did you use the same Varathane finish as the Morris chair?

I like your stock pile…and I like your table.But I think we all might like more information about the finish.

Wonderful table! I really like the corbels. It is hard to get them to look right, while not having an overhang that is out of scale with the project. To my eye you got it just right. How did you attach the corbels?
