Hi there, This is my second chair build, and each time I build one it becomes more fun. This chair took me a week to build from start to finish. The wood I chose to build this chair out of was Cedar, and walnut for the backing.
The finishes I used was tune oil, and poly. I used 320 to sand between coats.
Hope you enjoy.

Comments welcome.

Thanks, Michael Frey

Nice job of chair making. As a lover of walnut, I really like the use of it both as the back splat dowels and the pegs.

That’s really nice! I’ve posted a chair, too. It was fun to make. Dear Hardwoodman, if you read this, consider a design that would let you adjust the seat height as that niece grows.

I Thought the choice of making the back rest our of walnut was a good idea.
The only problem is it will kill your back… LOL

Looks good. I would like to see this design with copper tubing in place of the walnut. Would make for a nice outdoor seat and probably a hot seller in OR.

rhett, that is a good idea to replace the walnut with copper, it add more of an industrial, and Organic look.
Next chair I build I should try that.
Thanks for the idea.

I like the wood choices. You did a nice job on the construction. It looks very sturdy. Good work.
