This is my first and only chair. This was meant to be a prototype with the yet to be made second one being done in white oak. This chair is all poplar stained walnut and finished with amber shellac with 6 coats of wipe on poly applied to the arms.
My wife picked out the fabric for the cushions and for once I liked what she chose.
I kind of winged this chair. The seat 3” higher than most chairs (easier on my knees) and I put straight arms on mine. You can’t put a dinner plate or a drink on a curved arm.
The ottoman I made too high. The guy that upholstered it explained to me that the top of the ottoman shouldn’t be any higher then the top of the front rail. So I now have a bench seat.
I still haven’t made the second one but maybe someday…...
