This project came about because my daughter is always tying to sit in our chairs in the house and none of them look all to comfortable. And any chair we saw in the stores was partical board. So may as well make something that can be passed down. it’s made out of bubinga left over from previous project finish is just blo in picture but will wax it later.

Very nice. Has a kind of Nakashima/Maloof touch. Nice!

Really a nifty looking chair. Never saw that style before. Looks like your daughter is enjoying it. She may want a table to go with it.

And for the category of “Dad of the Year”, the nominees are …

I remember the frustration my own kids displayed when nothing really fit. Lucky girl that her dad can set the world a little straighter. Great looking chair. Her kids will someday enjoy it equally

Not sure which is cuter, the chair or the customer! Great job.

Cool design.
Could probably make another with a rocker bottom as well.
You’re definitely going to have to make a desk or table…... speaking from experience.
Great work.
