I saw plans for this chair in a woodworking magazine a few years ago and knew I had to give it a try. I got started last January and cut a lot of the pieces to size. Then I became intimidated by all the carving and the many angles involved in making this chair. My limited supply of walnut also made me nervous about making a mistake and having to buy more for a project I was pretty shaky on. I’m giving it another shot this year and began my cutout and carving for the back of it last week. The carving is all new to me and has been slow going so far. I’m going to take my time and do my best to get it right.
