My first Jake’s chair. First time doing the rounded back, and I dont think I could ever return to a straight back….this chair is amazingly comfortable. To bad I made this one for my friend…now I’m going to have to make a pair for myself.

Very nice chair. What are those clamps you are using on the table saw for sanding?

Great looking chairs. These would be bad for me though as they would probably mash the sleep button half way up my backbone.

Thanks all for the comments! The clamps I am using on the table saw are Irwin spring clamps. Very reasonable price, and work great!
