I called this one my T.V. chair because the headrest looked like an old time T.V. set. It followed me around the country from Oregon To West Virginia and back before I finally finished it. It turned out Nicely. It is made from Oregon Myrtle and has red micro suede upholstery to compliment the padauk inlay plugs.. The backrest slats are glue lamination’s, sadly I have to remake that form soon as it was left behind. The ottoman nests nicely under the chair.

Where’s waldo?

That is the chair in my West Virginia shop

can you spot it?

hard to find it here.

Taking up shop space.

As you can see this thing folowed me around for many years and many other projects were completed before this chair was done. It took about eight years from start to finish. Not a rush job.

Finally it is done.

Thanks all for your comments, Sorry about the mess. Rosarita hasn’t been in lately and it gets a bit like a Shel Silverstein poem.
