I finally finished my Roorkhee Chair. The chair frame is African mahogany and the seat, back, and arms are leather. The leather is joined together with brass rivets. The conical mortise and tenons were difficult to get precise, but the chair is fairly forgiving. This project required so many different obscure hardware pieces and tools that it took me forever to finish it. Thanks for looking.

It looks great! Comfortable to sit it?

Congrats on finishing it.
