A couple fresh ones made from cedar roots, seat pans were carved from old growth cedar burls. They both sat like a dream.

I normally never like rustic woodworking althought this is just semi rustic.I must honestly say this is one of the nicest chairs I have seen in a while and I would definitely buy it myself. The second one I don’t like quite as much but still nice enought to want to own.Can I say fairer than that.first chair is my preference in other words Alistair

As usual, these are amazing! I agree with Alistair, the rounded back-hugging curves make the first one my favorite, too. I love your work so much! Rustic is the style I like best, but this transcends common rustic stlye. How do you define and describe it?

And they say Sam Maloof designed organic-shaped chairs ? Wow, these are the most organic-looking chairs I have ever seen. I am not usually a great fan of rustic chairs but this goes well beyond “rustic”, crosses the equator and comes back from the hemisphere of “highly sophisticated”.
They also look extremely comfortable.
