I made 3 of these from a plan in the Woodworker’s Journal.

They are red oak and stained a dark brown. There are 22 mortise and tenons in each chair. It was a lot of work, but i like the results.

Thanks for looking.

Doing a nice job. You know these chairs were designed for folks that had a butler to pull them out and push them in? They have a tendency to fall over otherwise. I’m sure in these economic times, it won’t be hard to hire a couple. Be sure to post the finished project. Thanks for the post.

Thanks, tenontim, I’ll keep an eye out for a butler, I’ve always wanted one.
The stools are taking the place of some really ugly upholstered swivel things. I’ll take some shots of them in place when they are complete. I like the design. I’m not under the delusion they will be lounge chairs, but I really think they look cool. Plus, I’ve always like FLW stuff.

Dan, sorry, I didn’t see your question earlier. I plan on following the suggestion of the author. I am making a wood frame, then stretching webbing over it, weaved, then covering the whole works with foam, muslin, and a fabric my wife picked out. I just need to find a few hours to make it happen. I’m hoping this weekend.
