Topic tags/keywords: question trick

I love this chair. But a big part of me is just mystified on how to build it (simply or by carving out each piece individually). Are there any tips/shortcuts that would make this somewhat easier to build?

I would go with the “simply”. I doubt it has been carved out of one piece of wood. If you look at the frame closely, you can see the grain direction changes and a different grain flow.
