This chair was a bit of an experiment and an opportunity to practice bent laminations and making a carved seat. It is made from re-used mahogany baseboard, door casing and door jams. The baseboard and casing were planed down to about 1/4 inch or so and used for the bent laminations. While building it , I was concerned that it would not support a large person. It has been been tested by a person weighing 260 lbs with no problem. I added the gussets along the back diagonal leg (at the top and bottom) to stiffen the chair.
I am not happy with the design of the back, but was eager to get thie project finished. I am still searching for a more creative solution to repalce the very pointy Church window looking back..
