Leaving a little bit from the right angle parts to a more complex curved and turned project. It’s not so straightforward to make these curved joints, some pieces like the arms I needed to repeat 8 times until ended 4 without broken or ruining. Pieces of the arms flew over the shop when I tried to route end grain parts (doing and learning).
The wood is a local Brazilian wood called Jacatirão, finished with varnish and polish with carnauba wax. Sorry for the dovetails mistakes, when finished I realized that something was wrong.

Very nice … great curved work. The jacatirão is beautiful. I’m afraid you will have to be more specific as to the mistakes on the dovetails … I personally do not see any. Kudos!

Prety complex work! Those curved armrests are fantastic – realy high level of skill required here.
