Brian,
Great job. That looks almost exactly like the Woodsmith plan I built except yours has 18 slats on each side and mine had 17. I used the same color leather upholstery.
Here’s the link to my project:

It gets a little tiring finishing and sanding between all the bars doesn’t it?
Would love to see some more close up views.
Did you build an ottoman?

Again, great job.

Great job on this chair! I have been wanting to make one for some time now. Great web site as well. You have some great projects posted and I really like your G & G projects big fan of that style. Blondie and I were just at the Gamble house here in Southern California built by the Greene and Hall Brothers! It was amazing!

I like it ! Sturdy but not too heavy. The workmanship looks first class.

Beautiful job Brian.
One of those is on my eventual list, and I hope it comes out close as nice as yours.

Nice looking chair, but I’d imagine all those bars must have been a pain to put in haha. Great job.
