as always, thanx to sam maloof who’s a great inspiration to me. this is my first chair in 3 years and the first one in black walnut. chairs are special…the challenge, work, patience, etc. anyway, i’m grateful to be able to do this.

Very cool chair and a unique design. I can’t help wondering about the back to seat joint if it will hold up to every day use. perhaps this is meant to be more of a work art rather daily use ?

Thanks for posting a chair, my favorite projects. I really like this chair. Nice joinery at the legs. I also like the way you centred the grain pattern on the back.

this joint is surprisingly strong. i’ve planned it for daily use. my first customer who bought one in cherry is a writer. he sits in it everyday. and i’ve had a few sales for some who wanted it for an art piece. lots of glue and 2 X 3” screws from underneath. one guy tipping the scale at 350 lbs gave it a test drive….

It must be exactly what it looks like a fantastic chair. The joint looks like a sliding dove tail . This really is an amazing design.

Scott, that chair looks mighty fine. Fantastic work! I love the plywood table as well- amazing crisp joinery.

Very well done Scott, that is beautiful, and in my favorite wood. I saw a video on Sam MaLoof where he referred to black walnut as a “friendly” wood. How did you contour the seat.
