Hello there everyone,
Firstly I’ve got to say what a fantastic web site, seeing the range of projects from amateurs and pro’s, and amateurs who should be pro’s in one web site is truly unique.
Anywho, the reason I’m posting is to ask for some collective idea’s/inspiration. I’ve just acquired some mahogany, the father in law removed it from a pub cellar and was going to burn it ...lucky save… I have 3×3’s and 3×6’s with lengths between 3’ and 3.5’ (plus a whole load of shorter lengths), there’s not a huge amount but there’s easily enough to make a one-off chair (if it’s not too tall), something I’ve been thinking about for some time…
But what to build? there’s a chair built by Jon Rael, “The Fastback” (http://jonrael.com/) that has caught my eye, I love the angles, but so have many others. I’ve spent countless hours surfing etc. and just get lost amongst the myriad of designs, so I need help before I’m happy to settle on something.
What chairs have you all seen that just made your jaw drop???
Thanks in advance, oh and I’m pretty well tooled up, so I’m up for a challenge ;-)
