This chair was a commission for a client. The Elm cam from a local tree that had Dutch Elm and was taken down.
I have included a picture of the milling of the tree with my chainsaw mill. The seat is one piece of Elm which I dried in a home made kiln for stability. During this process the seat developed quite a curve so I decided to work with it and in the finished item you may be able to see the curve in the seat base. The 14 splindles in the back are Ash and the comb is Yellow Birch.
