Thanks to Marc Spagnuolo at the http://thewoodwhisperer.com/ for the idea and video’s on how to do this incredible build. If you folks aren’t members of ‘the guild’, it is well worth your investment!
The chair makes use of some of the design elements that Greene and Greene are known for. If you are not familiar with Greene and Greene, I STRONGLY recommend you check out the Gamble House in Los Angeles, Darrell Pearts awesome book “Greene & Greene Design Elements for the Workshop”
This chair is made from Sapele with ebony plugs. I purchased the wood in 8/4 and 4/4 size from Middletown lumber in Middletown PA.
Marc and Aaron did a great job on the design and templates for this beast. It is very sturdy! The techniques demonstrated in the videos really stretched me as a fairly inexperienced woodworker. But it was a wonderful learning experience.
Thanks for looking!
