I told my wife I would build her a new dinning room table and chairs if she would get rid of the old one. She has that hoarder mentality and can’t get rid of anything. The next day she gave it to my nephew who just got married. This is one of the six walnut chairs for the new one. Any suggestions on a table stye and wood to match it. If you like this design the original plans can be bought along with a very good instruction dvd from scott morrison

Great chairs

Since they are somewhat Nakashima style, that’s where I would go with the table.

I don’t know much about design, but I’m thinking rectangular table with the corners rounded off. Simple clean lines and tapered legs.

Nice chair by the way.

Great looking chair! I love walnut, and your chair makes great use of it!

As for table designs, you might also try Tage Frid. I think he has a chair design similar to yours, and he also designed a couple of dining tables that you might be interested in.

That is pretty cool! You’ve created a very functional project. Incredible. That’s a champion. Real nice.

Great looking chairs. I love to make three legged chairs and yours are beautiful, Great design and shape, beautiful wood and finish. I love the tapered and curved stretchers.

Very nice chair! I like the flowing lines. Congrats!
Regarding the table I would suggest a very simple rectangular tempered glass top over a matching walnut base. Those chairs are too nice to be “covered” by a solid table top.

VERY NICE! Has a danish modern feel? I’m thinking you might continue the three legged theme? Triangulated table w/sides two hold two chairs each? Might require more floor space than you have? Rectangle shape would fit narrower room.

Those are great chairs. I would look into a Nakashima or Maloof inspired design for the dining table.

Bones – I wasn’t trying to give you a hard time….I was just poking you in the ribs a little. You did a wonderful job and I love the changes you made (wish I had thought of them). Great work and very impressive skill and craftsmanship.

And thank you!
