These two chairs were actually made of wood from Home Depot. The backs and the seats the sea were made out of decking and the legs were made out of 4×4’s that were turned on my lathe. Because of potential of high moisture content I use polyurethane glue.

I printed out the pattern I wanted for the apple tree on the back of the chair I use to spray adhesive and then use a small router with a small bit (1/16”) to cut out around it and then use a chisel to finish it off — I think it came out very nice. Who needs a CNC!
The legs have apples Turn doing them to keep with the style to hold back up there are two large pins beneath the back.
I finish it with 3 coats of spar urethane.

Incredible work, those chairs are so cool. They look like they were made to be heirlooms back when craftsman did this kind of freehand work. Now something like this is usually done with the help of a CNC machine.

Those are quite amazing. I like so much about them:
1) the joinery of the back to the base.
2) the carving on the backs 3) the apples in the legs complete with color.
