Hello again. This is another piece that I made in 2012. This is a reclaimed trunk that I was challenged to make into a chair by a good friend. I started by making an inner frame that secured the lid to the bottom of the trunk. Then I carved the legs out of some African Mahogany I had left over from another project. I wanted to give the legs an animalistic hoof look without being too obvious about it. I rigged the seat to come out so that the trunk could still be used for storage. Again, sorry for the lack of detail pictures. I know better for the future.
Hope you enjoy,

Very cool! I like the way the buttons are different sizes. The legs are great too. Peg legs or cabriole style wouln’t have looked right.
