Do you work with the chair on your bench like that?  Or is it just posing?  Seems it would be devilishly difficult to keep it from falling.

I like that you are trying to add sculpting but maintain some of the lines from the original piece. The only thing that comes to mind is if it doesn't make sense to try an follow a hard strait line just don't do it. I feel lie you have enough sculpting experience to know what's right.

That pic was for posing, but I do lay the chair on the table for shaping.  I place a towel like in this pic, or a blanket on the table while shaping and sanding. Helps keep the piece from moving but more importantly keep the sanded parts smooth. When shaping I'll put stand the chair on the floor, put it on it's side on the table, upside down on the table, hanging off the table, however I can stabilize for shaping.

Really coming along. I like the change you made to the arms. 

Have you sat in it yet? How comfortable is it?

I believe, had this been the original design, I would have built this instead of the low back for my daughter. Great job bud!

I just noticed that you had already said it was comfortable to sit in, my apologies. I saw the last pic and skipped over the text after it.

What I always thought was surprising is that Maloof liked his low back chair the most. To me it's down the list a little. I've made a few but I'm not sure I'll use those patterns again.

I think there is still more you can do with the changes I made in this build, but I'm with you in that I do think it's an improvement. 

Thanks for the kind words.

Really nice job BMAC!! I had to pull up some hank chair pics to see just how far you took it, you definitely made it your own. Not going to lie if I make one I think it will be closer to BHANK then the original HANK :)

Love what you've done!  May I ask what osmo you went with?  Is it the 3043 POLYX-OIL Satin?

Thanks.

Yes, went with the PolyX Oil, Clear Satin.

Beautiful job bud! Does the back set back as far as the Maloof Low Back? I’d like to have one of these for my desk chair but prefer a more upright than the low back.
