This is one of my trade mark chairs. I’ve made several of these over the years. This chair was made especially for the Texas Furniture Makers Show in 2006, where it took third place overall. The arms and back slats are steam bent from solid wood. The legs are made using the quadrilinear method. This allows the quarter sawn
figure to show all the way around the legs. This particular chair has been darkened using the ammonia fuming method. This finish required about 20 hours of fuming. The cushions are a coil spring, feather and foam construction. I’ve also attached a couple of pictures of other chairs with other finishes and built from other woods.
