Hi great job
It look very cool and interesting. I really like the combination between the oak and the walnut and all the curves. With only one picture I’m probably not in my right to say this, but I’m not sure if the triangular back piece really suits it. I’d like to see a picture with a person in the chair.
Thanks for sharing.

Really like the design of the chair. Always great to see what others are making using their own design. Looks like a lot of work that paid off. Now the question is how does it feel sitting in the chair?
thanks for sharing

Definitely a different and wonderful looking chair. The main question is how comfortable is it? It looks like it
would be great to sit in, but with the base you might have to be careful leaning sideways. Thank you for
sharing and welcome to Lumberjocks.

i’ll try upload some more pics but my internet is very slow, well the thought behind the triangular back was that it will go between you shoulder blades and support your spine, i know it looks a little odd.

this was also a design project so, as a design i don’t think it will be to everyone’s taste and i don’t expect everyone to like it. but the general consensus amongst my class was that it was more comfortable than it looks. as far as strength goes im a fairly big guy 254 lb’s and it seems to hold me up fairly well. its on exhibition at the moment but when i get it back i’ll upload some photos of me sitting in it. thanks for the feedback.

Another A+ project!

This is a very cool design and all the laminations are just amazing.

Great effort!
