In an attempt to add a chair which is more suitable for an older person to sit in, this is what I have come up with. It is made 1 1/8 cypress using all 18-8/304 stainless fasteners with one mortise and tenon to join the back leg assembly to the skirt boards. Made one for my wife and she really likes it so in it goes to my product mix. The prototypes took me about a day each and hope to increase production up to two a day.

(16 Sept 2012) I have updated this post and added a shot of the Sette.

Thanks for the kind comments.

Anyone know where I can obtain cushions other than retail stores with some quality at a fair price?
