Hi All
This is a chair I made for my family room. It was designed after an article I saw in an old Canadian workshop magazine. I made it out of red oak with a green leather seat to match the pool table. It has a place to rest your pool cue and importantly a place to set your drink when its your turn to shhot.

I scrolled the surname in the back just to personalize the chair.

This is a very nice chair. I like the fact that it has two cup holders- one for each hand I suppose. I am sure that makes for some lively games. :)

Seriously I do like the fact that you take care of our left handed friends as well. Too often they get overlooked.
But just one chair? Obviously I can forsee some more of these in the future. Maybe one for each que?

Thanks for the post.

Beautiful chair and the notch for the cue stick is brilliant. I’ve played pool in many bars and pool halls and have never seen a chair with a notch in it like that. Now I want to make all new bar stools at my house just so I can have that notch. :)

And if you need to feed the baby while you’re shooting a game of 8-ball it can pull double duty as a high chair. <g>

This is sooooo nice! I love it. And a beer holder for each hand too. I especially like the scroll work with the initial.

-- Happy woodworking!

I like the chair. It reminds me of the days back in the 50’s as a teenager working in my dad’s pool hall. He had a few chair’s like that, but not that nice.

CWC, Nice looking chair! Anytime you can incorporate drink holders into a piece of furniture is A O K with me!
