    How about a nursery glider. Built as a belated wedding present for my nephew. He moved to France for a couple years right after getting married to I waited for them to get back to the US before building it.



    Made out of genuine mahogany purchased at Klingspor. While in France his first daughter was born.

    A (semi) matched pair of Morris chairs I made for my boys. Walnut with white oak corbels and drawbore pegs. All hand-cut M&T joints.

    That's just playing dirty Ken, sitting that sweet young lady in the glider. BTW, that glider is a dandy!

    It's a challenge to find a good enthusiastic furniture model these days.

    Glider I built for a niece. One shot unfinished, one after she finished it multi-colored!

    Re: April 2017 Contest: Post pictures of a sitting apparatus you have built

    This photo is my most recent finished piece that was commissioned as a birthday gift for a 75th birthday. The Maloof Low back chair was made of quartersawn walnut with ebony accents and finished with satin Waterlox finish. The piece was custom designed as the individual is over 6'5" tall and we carefully orchestrated his daughters taking various measurements without him having a clue that he was getting a custom fitted chair. This was not my first chair of this design.

    This is a replica of a John &Thomas Seymour chair that is a companion piece to a Seymour Ladyís Tambour Secretary. It is made of mahogany with satinwood inlay on the rail crest and legs set off by surrounds of black/white stringing. The styles and rear legs have reeding along with each banister that terminates at the crest rail with hand-carved fans. The seat is upholstered the old way with springs, twine and padding. It is finished with lacquer and hand-rubbed to a high gloss.

    Built lots of chairs, but this one took the most time.

    Re: April 2017 Contest: Post pictures of a sitting apparatus you have built

    Here are the chairs I just finished up last week. I wrapped up the seats on 2 of them this morning and the other 4 will have to wait because shaker tape weaving is not my hobby of choice.
    These are the first chairs I have had the chance to make but a windsor is in my near future.




    And two in-progress shots.




    The lumber was all milled from a willow oak that fell on a pasture down the road from us. It sat for 2-3 months so you can see some worm holes. Everything straight was also steamed when I steam-bent the legs to sterilize the bugs. Pins are walnut leftovers. The top most rungs all look discolored because they are left mostly unvarnished to help prevent the seat weave from sliding. Everything is shaped by hand with the exception of the rungs that were turned on the lathe to near final dimensions and then spoke shaven for texture.

    Three Morris chairs that I built. All three using oak from Scott Smith. The first one on the far right I did about 5 or 6 years ago. The other two were built at the same time about a year ago.
