“The tlf08 chair by Tobias Labarque is made of beams of Padauk wood, assembled into the form of a lounge chair. The corners of each beam have been rounded off to provide comfort, and the tree rings are shown in plain view so that you can see the tree’s structure.” (, Feb 3, 2011)

Wonder how much glue was used in the making of that chair. Neat grain orientation had to be a fun project.

I wonder how comfortable it is to sit on. But it’s pretty awesome.

How long did it take to clean up the squeezeout so it wouldn’t show as splotches in the finish

Any guesses how many brads Norm would have used if making this?

It would be a breeze gluing one layer at a time providing you could keep track of all the pieces now that would be the nightmare, maybe it has built in castors

Patron, I wonder if the inside is hollow – that would make sense. I wonder if that would affect the structural integrity of it though? probably not.
