I stepped it up a bit on this project for my son’s third birthday. Although he is not much of a sitter, he does like his chair very much and it adds a wonderful look to the living room.
I actually bought a local olive log from a customer at our Woodcraft store. I had Kevin, a friend of mine of owns King Mesquite, mill it into lumber. I dried the lumber for well over a year before deciding to build this project.
I reduced the number of fasteners tremendously by using the Festool Domino and dowels in a couple of select areas. I also used epoxy in all the joints. I used Behlen’s Master Gel for the finish which came out quite exquisite if I do say so myself!
The seat and back are upholstered with brown leather.
