This is the second chair that I have made that is inspired by the sweeping slender back of Charles Rohlfs desk chair. My cousin was moving and downsizing from his house into a condo and was cleaning out the garage. He had some maple boards that were left over from the kitchen cabinet installation 10 years earler, which I took home. I also had a few small pieces of walnut hanging around the shop. I planed off the finsh and glued up the boards to the right thickness or cut strips for lamination. The back and side rails of the chair are made of with bent laminations. The back is made of three pieces, two maple and the centre piece wlanut. The the back is also trimmed and topped with walnut. It is finished with a chestmut stain and urethane. When my cousin and his wife moved into thier new condo I returned his wood to him.
