How’s you manage the curved back in one afternoon?

Sweet – I like it. Pine is not way up there on my list, but I know your fear of buying good wood. Keep checking around and you can find cheaper wood in the weirdest places. Keep an eye on Craigslist too.

Love the design – thanks for the link.

Thanks Everybody! It is surprisingly comfortable. The seat is angled down and to the back as well as slightly contoured. The backrests are just high enough to support your lower back when you lean back. It’s a good desk chair, but it’s not a lounge chair or anything. The backrests aren’t too complicated. They aren’t bent wood or laminated, I just used a 2×6 and cut out the curved design with my bandsaw.

Very nice Dan, I hope you used at least one of those finely sharpened planes you have… :-)

Hey Dan,

It’s Brandon from whyrHymer! Thank you for posting this and especially your admiration of my work. I saw that I had a lot of referrals to my website from Lumberjocks and I found the source. Well done for an honest days worth of work. Anytime you have a question feel free to email me.

Take care.
