  1. I saw the original while traveling in South Africa, made by a dutch woodworker in 1790. I took some liberties with the design and wood species. Also the carving in the close up was a lot more simple in the original.

    Curly maple chairs

    I made a set of curly maple bar stools for a client and had some left over parts so I put together a smaller regular height chair with them. The seat is done using a CNC but the rest is done using traditional woodworking techniques. The sides of the seat were cut out of the surface material that was adjacent to the seat and folded down for a waterfall effect as opposed to a book matched look. The finish is done by dying the wood with yellow analine dye, sanding it almost off, followed up with red analine dye, followed by varathane.
