A part of my latest project; a set of 10 chairs, two with arms (carver), which is accompanied with a 2m80 (9’2”) x 1m20 (3’ 11”)extending table – I post this table as soon as I have some photographs.
I cannot claim the design of the chairs, apart from the modification to include the arms on two of the chairs.
The chairs are made from European White Oak, all the lumber for the chairs and the table come from the same tree, so the colour matching is made easier. The finish on the chairs is a hard-wax oil (floor treatment) and Fiddes supreme paste wax. The upholstery was undertaken by a local professional and the material was provided by the customer.
The 10 chairs represent about 150 hours of work, but a large part of that was modifying and fitting the arms (about 30 hours). The chairs are going to be delivered today, if it stops snowing!
