My most recently completed project is this inexact replica of the Limbert #500 chair. The material is a very light colored red oak that I found at the local hardwood supplier (Almquist Lumber). I scaled the measurements from pictures I found on the internet and drew a full sized side view to try to nail down final dimensions and construction details. It is stained with a home-brew asphaltum, linseed oil, and mineral spirits stain, followed by paste wax. I like the color of the stain but it takes a few months for the smell to dissipate. I can live with that. If I make another one, I will tweak a couple of dimensions, but basically I’m very pleased with the way it turned out.
