For my second project, I was crazy enough to go for a sculptured chair with just pure joinery. Meet Mark 1. I wanted to get a feel of an advanced project. To my surprise, it is really very comfortable because of the lumbar support and the carved seat. This piece has a special location in my workshop … to remind me of a very very very long list of lessons learned:) I’m all fired-up for Mark 2! ... and hopefully I can give it already a real name.

That is a great looking design. I look forward to seeing it with a finish on it.

That is looking fantastic!
Great build. I love the curves in the seat.
Can’t wait to see the finish too.

Nice work. What kind(s) of wood did you use?

A brave venture and a very stylish chair. Kudos.

In the workshop? What? Why not in the living room, and displayed proudly?

Excellent job!

PS – Are those backrests laminated? I can’t tell from the pictures …

Yes it is laminated. I kept it in the workshop to remind me of all the mistakes I made.

Have your say...
