I made this chair for my three year old granddaughter and she calls it her princess chair. This is the first chair I ever designed and built and the first time I tried carving. The chair is made from pine and it has her initials inlaid into the back splat. The chair has a volute at the upper rear seat legs, a Federal fan on the rear of the chair shoe, a shell on the front of the seat rail and acanthus leaves carved into the cabriole legs. The chair is fitted with a hot pink slip seat to match the inlaided initials. I finished the chair with seal coat of sellac, then used the Maloof oil and wax finish. I have approximately 200 hours in the design, build, and finish.
All comments welcome. Thanks for looking.
