Great work. Love the curly ambrosia.
At first I thought you had used rising dovetails on the front legs.
Thanks for posting it.

this is an awesome completed chair. i like this design, and choice of wood.
did you make just one or an eight chair set? that would be alot of work.

not only is the sculptural form just gorgeous on your chair style, but the color contrast and splash of interest with the ambrosia, is just outstanding.
Well done again,

Thanks for posting these pictures. I’ve got a build of a kitchen table and four chairs that i was planning to use Ambrosia maple for the seats and table top and walnut for the rest of the chairs and table base. Great to see a live project using those woods together!

It’s in my favorites! I love this style of chair that you make and this one is the best. The curly ambrosia maple seat gives it a perfect contrast. Thanks for inspiring.

I love your chair. The craftsmanship and wood selection is fantastic. I’m always looking for ugly, bumpy, gnarly maple logs, or maple logs with dark stains showing on the ends! Under all that ugly exterior you almost always find some of the most beautiful wood.
