Thank you everyone.
I did have templates.
70% of the work is hand shaping with rasps

Wow – very nice.
That walnut just looks delicious.
Someday I might try one of these, and use yours for an inspiration.

First chair? Yikes….

For a first chair, you kind of just dive into the deep end! Great result – a treasure for years to come.
