Jalen built this chair for a school project last year. He was 15 years old at the time. This is his second project. His first was a Blacker House Arm Chair.
Jalen plans to enter it in the Project Showcase at the Indianapolis woodworking show tomorrow.
He built a prototype first since he had never tried something like this before.
All of the wood used was bought at an auction for a lumber company that went out of business. It cost $5 and we used about half of it so we have about $2.50 in wood
He used a Festool RAS to scoop the seat.

I think one of the coolest things about woodworking is all of the great people we have had the privilege to meet. Jalen has been able to show his chairs to many of his heroes in woodworking. They have given him a lot of great advice.
Sorry for so many pictures. Its been a great year.
