Really beautiful chairs! May I ask how you removed the bulk of the material for the seats? I’d love to do some sculpted furniture and am interested in what methods people use.

You are getting better and better! What software are you using for presenting the chair on a white background?

thanks for the cool comments. The image is done in photoshop. I crop the background and then make a gradient backdrop with the gradient tool.I purchased a Kutzall sanding disc/wheel that I put on my 4” grinder. First time I used it and it works like a charm. I bought the course one and will probably get the fine one soon. I’ve seen it done a million different ways. Sam precut his seats on the band saw but his seats were made of 5 pieces. I was fortunate…..these seats are one-piece.

I have a healthy respect for anyone who can make chairs—even more for someone who does them as nice as these.Maybe one day I get up enough courage to attempt such an abitious project.Very nice. Good work.

Beautiful job! Love the wood choice. The seat looks perfect for comfort. How does that back feel? It looks narrow but if it’s in the right place and has the right contour, it wouldn’t matter. You probably have the whole thing down to an exact science.
-- Thanks for all the lessons!

THE NEXT ONE/S WILL HAVE A LITTLE MORE INCLINE…A FEW MORE DEGREES. THE HEIGHT IS PERFECT, BUT AS FAR AS HAVING IT DOWN….THAT’S A STRETCH….THE PROBLEM IS I’M OBSESSED WITH CHAIRS…..PAZ
