This is the first chair I have tried to make its pretty comfortable I like the design more then anything. It’s made from Western Maple and Honduras rosewood mostly mortise and tennon but a has a few dowels in it. THe chair doesn’t look strong but it holds me and I am close to 200 Lbs. There is A little side to side movement but I am not going to sell it cause I don’t know the actual weight capicity it can handle and dont want to test it on the public.

I’m impressed, you’ve got the most unique chair I’ve seen in a long time. The wood selection is beautiful and I love the sculptured look.

I really like the lines and proportion from back, to seat, to legs. Your design has great harmony and simplicity, and the woods really add to the effect. I second @andyboy’s comments – I look forward to your future endeavors :)

It looks great! Can you tell me how you hollowed out the seat for your butt? Always wondered how that was done.

Looks structurally precarious, in a good way.
