I built these more than a year ago and it was a long project. A self-test more than anything.
I chose a simple mission-inspired design with mostly straight lines as I wanted to increase my odds of success. One thing worth mentioning is that I made these chairs in a 14×16 basement workshop that did not include a bandsaw at that time. The wood species is red oak. I created some router template/jigs to put over the seats to rough out the contour and sanded them smooth with a sanding disc on a drill.
These now sit in our dining room and are calling for the companion table to join them some day.
