Awesome, I really like that you incorporated the sap wood into it instead of wasting it!

Great chairs. Maloof keeps inspiring..
One question: I cant figure how the joint that attaches the back to the seat is made. Must be a spot that has a lot of tension. How do you go about this?

not much tension there really and since the glue is stronger than the wood it is fine. plus, I have 3 2-1/2” screws going up from underneath…...the dry fit is super tight so it works out nicely….thanks!

The chairs look great. I was wondering about that type of design, how durable is the back? Does the seat back tend to tear out of the seat?
