Redwood root chair, I saved these roots for a couple of years until I had enough for a nice piece the seat and back are spalted alder burl, what a beautiful contrast the alder was a little soft so I did a two part epoxy finish and took the shine off with 400 grit and steal wool the rest is finished with a satin poly. There is a huge amount of hand work that went into this chair, the results were worth every minute. Thanks Jeffro

Just amazing. Nature has given you a beautiful blank canvas and you surely know what to do with it. Great work Jeffro.

Are you sure you didn’t buy this at Wallmart in their $69.99 China fabricated Beachwood Collection?

Just kidding, I like the detail molding of the spalted alder burl seat and back. That must of took a lot of time of detail carving/sanding. How did you attached the seat and back to the rest of the redwood root frame? Somehow I don’t think you used scews, maybe pegs?

Nice Job
I always like going back and looking at your driftwood entry way piece and I invite others to do so.

You said “chair” but I think ‘throne’ is more appropriate. I don’t think I could sit on something so nice! I’ve never had the gift for this sort a natural look. You sure got it right though!

I’ve kind of run out of things to say to you, Jeffro. They just keep getting more substantial and with more beautiful tones. The pillow seat is exquisite. It’s actually a bit painful for me to look at your work. I love it so much that it gives me just a bit of chest pain.

What type of joinery do you use to put that together?
