This is a follow up to an earlier post of mine. I built one of these as a gift for a client of mine about 3 months ago. I was waiting till I had completed his basement remodel before I presented it to him. In the meantime, his wife asked me if I would also build her one. She new about the first one and had seen the pictures and said she must have one as well. I completed both pieces and sprayed them in my garage with some Cabots Australian timber oil. Sure does do the natural color of the cypress some justice. Absolutely love the way they finished. I have since delivered them and my client and his wife just loved them.

Hello Todd Adair

Great work

I like them because you can use them on the side you prefer
The feet on the top or the head on the top
Thanks for sharing

Neat chairs. Did you design these yourself?

Unusual use for curves. Are they comfortable to lay on, head either direction?
I have a pile of cypress left from a decking project, I will have to look into Australian oil, thanks

These are absolutely as comfortable to sit in as they look. Extremely ergonomic. As far as the design, no it is not mine. I did modify it slightly from the original, but the customer I built these for had one that he had purchased at an antique shop about 10 years ago. The original was made out of plywood and had fallen apart. I used what was left to create a template.
