Hey Lumberjocks, It has been awhile since I have posted any thing. I could not wait to finish this chair to put it on this sight and explain my find. My wife and I went on a ride in the country and we came across a garage sale. I stopped and notice up against a tree was these backs of a chair and the seat front. I was talking to the gentlemen about them. He was a retired wood worker that had hurt his back and could not work any more. He had 12 backs and fronts of the chairs, Pic 2 and 3 that he was selling. He told me he was moving to Kentucky and he needed the money. So he made a offer the I felt I could not refuse. I knew I would have to get legs or make them, make the seats and I would have to finish them. I thought I could finish them and sell them and make a little money on them. I only finished one of them so far. I am not in a hurry. I wanted to finish the first one to see how long it would take me to complete. The wood of the chair was genuine mahogany. I made the legs out of mahogany. I made a template and cut the legs out with my band saw and shaped them. I made the seats using 3/4 plywood, 2inch foam and upholster cloth. I used special walnut as the stain and used lacquer for the finish. I think the first one turned out good. I would like some feed back on the chair positive of neg . Thanks for looking
