Hi guys
Here are my first chairs, I made them from a plan I purchased from The Massachusetts furniture Institute.
The plan is for a full size chair but I reduced it by 20%. It was a great project and a great learning process, to the point that I feel confident to build a full size set. The wood is mostly Pilipino mahogany that I got from the guild, the finish is Danish oil, wipe on poly and wax, I started working on the table that goes with them.
Thank you for watching, any comments or question are welcome .
