You’ve made a great replacement. I bet it looks like it was one of the original set. I’d like to see a photo of the table and all the chairs.

Amazing build, chair and carving. Looks like a lot of very skilled work to produce it.

Thanks for the very thoughtful comments. We do what we do because we love what we do. Our personal satisfaction and the positive response we get is our reward. When the hours are added up (about 105 for one chair) The money really doesn’t matter. If it did, we wouldn’t do it.
