This project posting is about 4-5 months late…
I built this Settee as a donation for my son’s school auction earlier this year. There was a ton of interest, and it did end up selling, but the problem was that people just weren’t prepared to be buying furniture at the auction. Several people just weren’t sure if it would fit where they wanted it to go in their house, otherwise I think the price would have been much higher.
At any rate, I was actually surprised at how difficult it was to let this one go. To date, it’s by far the best thing I’ve built. Not only that, I was in heaven building it, just an absolute joy to make. This Settee turned out (in my very harsh opinion) 100x better than the low-back single chair I built last year, but I still have a lot to improve. However, the finish on this one is awesome, I’m very very pleased with how the finish just glows.
This is the first piece where the pictures actually don’t do it justice!
Any and all comments/questions welcome.
