During a trip to Puerto Rico I found the chair illustrated in the middle of the picture. I was in need of restoration and lots o so I disassembled the chair and mailed it home. The original was made in mahogany. After restoring the chair to the original glory I decided to make another one to have a pair. I could not end it there, my wife asked me for a love chair using the same design. Now she asked for a rocking chair using the same style and design.
The wood is locally harvest oak from a tree that had outgrown a friends yard space.

Those are very fine lookiing chairs. You did a great job restoring and rebuilding the original one and an even better job reproducing it and making the love seat. All three looking really good. I’ve nevern tried to inlcude cane in my chairs. How easy or difficult is it to install?
