There is not a detail here that has not been masterfully carried off.
What is you process for building one of these? I ask because I have a very similar chair I would like to make.

RG – I followed Hal Taylor’s plans. I somewhat documented the process in a lumberjock blog.
Hal sells video’s and plans. Well worth the money to me. His documentation is excellent. Here is a link to his plans.
I also noticed that he sells kits for those who don’t have the means to get and cut big boards/slabs.

I don’t know who Hal Taylor is, but that looks more like a Sam Maloof Design

Hal design is a take-off of Sam’s but Hal’s is more comfortable imho because the back rest is laminated and it conforms to my back well.

That is just perfect! The wood is beautiful. The joinery gorgeous. And the finish begs to be touched. This is my long term goal: to build one of these. I have the tools and the wood but don’t think my skills are up to it yet. I drooled over the one you posted a year ago and am still working towards one.
