These children’s chairs were made for two new grandsons. They are the same patterns and dimensions as other I have posted previously.
The Windsor is basswood (seat) and red elm turnings.
The ladderback is maple with a woven seat of Red Elm bark.

Merry Christmas.

That is such a refreshing change, to see painted wood
Painting can really bring out the design of the chair and
enhance the joint structure.
I paint all my production prototypes as it means that I
can see the design without the wood.
Oops! The chairs look awesome.
