A friend of my let me peak into his copy of The Anarchist Design Book and I fell in love with these back stools. I modified these ones slightly from the book, using a fairly high crest rail and a lower seat with less rake on the back leg. I’m still a novice as far as chairmanning is concerned, but I plan to play with this particular type of chair, maybe see where it takes me.

The chairs consist of a southern yellow pine seat, qs white oak crest rail, and cherry legs and spindles. Whats funny is that the cherry I got for these wound up being tremendously figured, so maybe one day if somebody decides to refinish these, that’ll be a nice surprise.

Finished with pitch black milk paint and shellac.
