Come On In, Have a Seat...


We need chairs!!
Building them is a lot more complicated than it looks lol!
This is how far we have made it on our first chair:

As soon as it is done, it will be the comfiest thing because Sher molded the back to exactly fit me!
Figuring out the angles in which to attach the seat part of the chair is the challenge though...
So this comfy back has been sitting on the sidelines of woodworkville for a while.

This will be what it looks like whenever we get them done, except they will be made of cherry wood - and finished in a natural way to allow the aging process to take place and grow into a lovely rich patina..
These look great in so many colors, I especially like the green:
AND THESE! MY FAVORITE PART!
Once we have our chairs built, Sher is going to make me some kid sized ones!
I can't wait for that!! I think I look forward to the kid size chairs more than the regular sized ones haha...
So, since our chair project is hanging out on the sidelines, Sher tells me I should pick some easier chairs to make first. Then with them under our belt we could tackle our dream chairs and their crazy angles..
SO.......
Do these look any simpler??....
(*plugs in her halo*)


or these??
Perhaps I could paint something on the back piece since we are not carvers LOL
And this one is nice, but the upholstery takes it out of the running..for now...

This one has a lot of carving detail...perhaps we could simplify those?
Well....maybe not, since that 's the whole point of this chair!...

This one is a little more straight lined...




Hmm....Do these look simple?? haha...


Then we come to Bar stools....need some of those too!
...I like the back on these, but not the legs!
These are nice too...also love the color ..
I guess I just don't like simple chairs??...Haha, poor dear husband...
He has such a long list of things to make and I can't find any boring chairs to like. :0)
Only interesting, carved and curvy chairs catch my eye!

Hopefully he will pick one of these, or maybe we can even mix and match and come up with something... We WILL conquer this and make some awesome chairs!..soon...lol
But right now all I know for sure is..
We need chairs!!!
;0)
