This is not my chair and I am not taking credit for it, I just wanted to post it to show how beautiful these chairs can be when a ture craftsman makes one, not like my simplified and cheaper version. This chair was made by Jonathan Black of Bella Barrel (www.bellabarrel.com). These are pics of one of his chairs I saw in a shop in St. Helena, CA priced at $750 ea. I have made a few now and they are posted on my LJ page. The biggest difference is the finish and attention to detail he did. I wanted to keep mine more rustic to feature the wine barrel influences and character. The sanding/finishing steps are my least favorite.
