I learned alot from the first build – like shelac based primer to seal the knots. On the first chair I used 1” dowel rod to secure the adjustable back support. This chair I used 1/2” bolt’s painted to match the scheme with a wing nut. Much easier to adjust the reclining back positions with this set up. Maybe not as pretty but what the hey.
Either way – the wife is happy and I can get back on with MY projects now ! :)

I think paint does these chairs more justice than natural finishes. Well done!

Asthetically, I like the 2nd version better if you’re gonna build more. (Not that my vote would count at your house anyway) LOL

I just think the smaller multiple back slats look better than the 3 wide ones.
