First of a set of four. Based on a picture my wife liked on the Internet. Made from some walnut my father in law was going to burn. Joined with pocket screws and glue. No stain, just polyurethane. First project without plans.

That’s a great piece.

It’s a shame you did it without plans, I’d love to get a set for it.

Simple, contemporary with clean lines, well-executed. Love the subtle curve. I like it a lot.

Can’t believe your FIL was going to burn that wood!

Look very stylish and well made. Your FIL is obviously not a woodworker, either that or he hates Walnut.

Love the simple lines and the curved seat.
Beautiful work.

I second the plans. Thats a great design. How are the pocket holes holding up with use? Familiar with SketchUp? :)

I really like that style. Simple, yet modern and as others have said…clean. Executed nicely!
