  3. Mission Style Chair

    This was my first mission style piece of furniture I've built. The rays in the oak didn't pop as I would have liked, but overall, I was pleased with my first chair and learned a lot when I built the tables later. I cut the foam myself and had my mother (yes, my mother) sew the fabric. I thought...
