I posted the table in January, finally finished some chairs and a bench. The bench has a floating top like the table. The chairs are cherry, curly maple and walnut with upholstered black leather seats. I made a few prototypes to figure out the angles and find out what was comfortable, then used the final prototype to make templates. The back legs and spindles were shaped with the templates and pattern router bits. The aprons and leg joints are mortise and tenon. The chairs are finished with three coats of Arm R Seal. I wanted six chairs so I cut parts for seven in case I messed up something. Everything worked out and I ended up with seven chairs. The upholstery was the hardest part, I’ll get someone else to do that next time.

Beautiful!! Love everything from the design to the combination of cherry, maple, and walnut. Really one of a kind and it has to be so satisfying to see it all come together so nicely.

Nicely done. The cherry and the curly maple play well together.
I’m curious about the dowels/plugs in the chair backs. Is it actually a dowelled joint? Screws and plugs? Just decorative?

The seat backs are attached with screws, the hole in the legs is large to account for wood movement. Thanks for the comments.
