Nice work on the chair!! The joints and contouring really make the piece.

I noticed the picture of you drawing/drafting. You should consider learning how to use something like SketchUp for drawing up your plans. The 3D model lets you see the project before you start building it so you can correct dimension errors or design problems before you start cutting. It also helps with making parts lists with as many dimensions and comments as you choose to add to it. Best part, it is FREE

Thanks everyone. Jaida is enjoying reading all of the comments. Good tip on SketchUp. We have tended to hand drew things so we can cut parts out spray glue them to plywood to make router templates. In this case she make a complete prototype out of scrape wood to test and make edits.

Absolutely a beautiful chair. I know I’ve seen Jaida’s work in the past and she’s really talented. You’re going to have to remove the word amateur from your homepage on LJs.

Jadia… Keep it up kid.
