The chairs are 20” wide between the live edge armrests, and the seat is around 17” deep. These have a nice throne feel to them. The seat height is 17” and overall height is 40”. I used 30 beadlock joints in each chair and a few pocket hole screws to secure the seat to the frame. So 120 tenon joints and a full bottle of Gorilla Wood glue later, they are rock solid. The legs are 1 3/4 square and all the rails are 3/4. The upper backrests I cut from slabs and are also 1 3/4” thick. I was very happy the customer asked about adding some live edges, they are my favorite. Its a challenge to find just the right places for live edges so that its a nice mix with the traditional lines.
The backs tilt back at 5 degrees for comfort.

These chairs were commissioned to go along with a barnwood table being built by someone else. Too bad, since they go well with my big dining table. Oh well, someday I will get a chance to build a set for myself.
Finish is tung oil.

I REALLY like these. A new dining room set is in my future, and I would love to have something like this.

Very, very nice work, as is all of your projects. I like the natural wood, it gives them a log cabin look. Keep up the great work.
