I’m very happy to finally add this to the projects page. It seems like its been a blog forever. This is the 1st piece that I’ve made that could possibly be construed as fine furniture. I’m not sure it actually makes it, but I’m real happy with how she came out. Pretty comfortable too.

Bob, it’s a real beaut! The dog will love it – he may even let you sit in it for a while.

I agree with Max – this is fine furniture at its best. And wow - that finish!

It’s great to to see a project from the drawing board through to the finished project.

Beautiful! Now on with the ottoman, plus your side table.

Thanks for the kind comments all. LOL….The ottoman is all designed and the side table too. I may get to them this winter…..:)

Don….this one is off limits to the dog. She already has her own chair….:)

She only has to be told once. Ridiculously smart dog and very well behaved. She wants nothing more in the world than to please me. And she actually does have her own chairs…both indoors and out.

It’s tough to see her getting old. I’ve had many dogs and she is by far the best I’ve ever had. She’s gonna be busy after tonight. Two new kittens coming home and she loves cats….actually prefers them to other dogs. I’m a little concerned about the kittens and my chair though.

She was semi-famous when she was younger. Entertained lots of local kids, was on a Japanese TV show, and was a spokesdog for a UK website that sells dog coats. (The owner asked if he could send us a coat and have us take videos of her playing soccer).
