I have never made a chair before this one. I have a new respect for those who make them. All the curves and angles made it more complex than I had expected. What a great learning experience! The next one will be much easier to do. I used quarter sawn and regular red oak for everything except the skinny slats on the curved area which are ambrosia maple from a friend’s back yard blowdown. Finished it with English chestnut stain and satin varnish.

That is a nice looking chair. The water-ski curve on the front of the arms is interesting.

Thanks. The arm tips are cut on the bandsaw from an 8/4 piece glued up to a 3/4. If you look close, you’ll notice the change in the grain pattern. It is very comfortable!
