This is my version of George Nakashima’s Conoid Chair and Greenrock Ottoman.
The wood is Tineo, the finish is oil. The footstool is wrapped in leather. All wood construction. Mortice and tenon along with saddle joints.
There were a lot of firsts in these projects for me, including my first chair. I am very happy with the results. I think that I’m starting to get the hang of this woodworking stuff.
The chair is incredibly sturdy and well balanced; there is no wobble or threat of tipping over. Since I wasn’t working from plans, I was able to tweak the design as I went along to make it more comfortable for me to sit on.
