Long ago I was asked to make a project out of mahogany. I purchased the material for the project then never heard from the person again. Well I decided after 8 years I wasn’t going to be getting that job so I thought it would look really nice as one of the newly designed Draper lounge chairs. i am very pleased with this chair. Finish is Odies oil

Your chair is amazing. I’d love to be able to build a piece of furniture someday like that. Great job.

Looks great, send them a picture on what they missed. LOL Love the soft curves on the wood. With out being offensive, I dont care for the slats being light color. It draws my attention away from the chair is all. Its just an observation, Great work …..
