@Lee- Originally, I had thought the same thing. Leave it until later and decide once the chair is a bit more assembled. However, I think it would be tough to hog off a large amount of material once assembled as I would be unable to put it back on the bandsaw. So, I’m trying to find out about where to end up cutting with the bandsaw. I’ll likely still leave it rough and end up doing a LOT of sanding to get it to the right shape.

@Kookaburra- The chair is for my wife. It was supposed to be done before my son was born. He’s now 11 months old. Whoops! I thought my time was better spent inside helping her maintain sanity than out on the shop making a chair. She’s OK with the delay, as when I finish it’ll be something we’ll have forever.

Time for my reveal:
Originally, I was leaning storngly towards #1. Then as I started drawing I liked the way that #2 curved back. #3 is far to extreme for me, but I wanted to present many options. Now, I’m leaning towards a hybrid of #1 and #2. I am thinking just a very subtle backwards arc might look nice. If not, I can always sand it back flat to make it like #1.
