This chair is based on an antique chair in my mother’s hallway that I have always liked. Does anyone know what type or style of chair this is? It was the first chair that I made. I’m not yet confortable with turning so the legs are straight. I have made 6 of these chairs. The first out of mahogany. I made four others that I gave away as christmas presents to family using up wood I had hanging around for years. The other chairs were made of cherry, pine, poplar, and a maple headboard and footboard from an old bed. I even made one from an old piece of 4”x12”x24”paralam beam that I had in my shop for over 20 years. It has a raised panel back. The carvings were purchased.
