My leather working friend sent me a photo and challenged me to make a chair. This is what I came up with. It looks better in person. I guess the pics lacks dimension and the bench is knotted and sinker cypress.

That’s real neat and great job on the chair. I like something different. Who wants to build someone like someone else did?

Nice job and it would look great at night with some light behind it.

And I LOVE that cypress bench. Beautiful wood.

I like both of them but that chair might bite you on the a$$ when you’re not looking. LOL

I love them ! The chair would soooo appeal to the hubs and anything left as natural looking as that bench is great

You can sneak up on someone and tickle them from behind or maybe give them a big hug! Nice work!
