I was wondering the same thing.

Very nice work, Derek. You're always an inspiration for improving my skills.

Here is my weekends work.

Comments and critique always welcome - would you approach this differently? Would you prefer a different glue?

Regards from Perth

Here is the latest chapter: http://www.inthewoodshop.com/Furnitu...BackPart2.html

The woodwork is now complete. There are a lot of pictures summarising the steps taken from shaping the arms, to installing, finishing and oiling. Skip to the end if you want.

The next - and final - chapter will be on the weaving of the seat and final photos.

As always, comments, critique and suggestions welcomed.

Regards from Perth

Derek

Default The Chair is finished

The seat has been woven and now the chair is complete.

For those interested in the weaving process, details are included in the final chapter: http://www.inthewoodshop.com/Furnitu...gTheChair.html

For now, I present the final pictures ..







A comparison with the original chair I think the weaving creates a lighter feeling. What do you think?



Thank you all for your support and encouragement along this journey.

Regards from Perth

Derek

I like the woven seat, both for looks and comfort.

Beautiful chair, nice work Derek.

How do they "sit," difference in feel between the two, which one do you think is more comfortable?
