It started out with these 2 (well 4 actually, they were busted) oak scraps I had been kicking around. I did not want to throw them out. They had figure and spalt. I just did not know what to do with them.
Then I figured, butterfly them together and see what strikes me. I was still stumped. They would have made cool cabinet doors, since they were a bookmatch, but I did not need a cabinet.
They it dawned on me I could use a chair. So I epoxied the crack and made the chair. I don’t really even like oak, too plain for me. I make my own lumber and don’t even saw it unless it is curly or 1/4 sawn.
So there it is, another scrap wood project from urban logged trees. I am digging through the piles now to find some similar pieces for an ottoman. If I have any luck I will post the set.
