Beautiful chair. Looks sleek in the design and smooth curves in the shape.
Great job Andy!

AWESOME!!!!!! I love the sleek lines and subtle curves of the design. Very well executed, I also like the way you ran the back splat past the seat (lengthwise).

I like everything about it. It is a great chair. I would love to have eight of those around my dining room table.

Andy, great job. This looks like the perfect combination of simplistic appearance and beauty. I'd like to hear more about the seat's joinery into the legs.

Thanks for posting it.

I really like the clean flowing lines in this design… Kind of a classic and modern feel all at the same time. How does it sit? Also, how many hours did it take?

Beautiful chair, I've only seen one like it anywhere, by Fatie Atkinson, in the Asheville Gallery. It is so light and strong and yet just looks robust in a way that is unexplainable. Kudos, I too would like to know your secret. Is it in the wood used or the lamination? A Fan

Hi - thanks for your kind comments.

The whole chair was made without using a tablesaw - my shop is sadly too small so I use a bandsaw and planer / thicknesser to do all my work on. The front legs were simply morticed and tennoned into the base of the seat and then I cut in curved blocks on the inside of the front and back legs to give it support. The back legs are attached the the back of the seat with a through tenon which you can just see in one of the shots.

The back splat was laminated ply bent over a former then lipped and over veneered.

The finish was tung oil and wax.
