Love the design…is that a rising dovetail on the front legs?

John,
Very nice design. I have a trestle table on my to do list and I think this chair design would look great with it.

John, I forgot to ask…how does it feel when sitting in it. I see you have the sitting area sculpted a little. Is it comfy?

final version sits great. first version back was too upright. I think I got it dialed in now.
