Because these chairs needed to be delivered about 400 miles from my home, I assembled only the side frames. I then transported the pieces and made final assembly at my daughters.

The jointery is bead-loc system loose tendons.

The material is alder. We custom created the dark stain by mixing a dark mahagony and ebony 1:1. The seat is a golden oak. The photo shows the chair before the final clear finish was applied.

Nice chair and finish! I thought it was walnut when I first looked.

Nice, is it your own design?
Bead-loc. I have never tried it, I guess you like it. Did you make your own tenons or buy the premade ones? Tell us more. Or better yet do a Reviews in the review section.

And Welcome to LJs,
Steve

Nice Chair. I choose the two tone look for a rocking chair project and I really think it makes a stronger finish statment for your piece. Well balance look to the chair (aka nice design). Michael
