This was my first true woodworking project, done over about 2 weeks of evenings and stolen weekend hours. I started the hobby because creating is good and feels good, and is something I want to teach my two boys.
I included my hand sanding helper in the pictures. He was so proud that he helped Dad make something. Dad was proud too.
The design was a slightly modified free plan from some free woodworking plans site which I can no longer remember.
I have since designed a table / desk to match the chair’s design features. It is about 3/4 finished, all cherry with walnut accents, breadboard ends, curved aprons, with a pencil drawer. Wish me luck.
