Wood: Quartersawn red oak.
Finish: Ammonia fumed,BLO,shellac,wax.
A couple of firsts: first chair and first time steam bending(back slats). Thanks to help in the forum for a newbie steaming.
The chair is slightly wider and taller than the plan(craftsman plans). The wood told me to do it.
All through tenons and back slat tenons were cut by hand since they are not 90 degree.
The ottoman is my design matched to the chair except it is all 90 degree cuts. It has a compartment under the cushion for storing junk.
The cushions cost ~$100foam, $50 batting and fabric, and $100 in labor. Way cheaper than leather and easier to clean.
Thanks For Looking.
