chairs

Barstool

Barstool

These barstools, available in standard and custom heights, are a design I have been building for years--they are attractive, comfortable, and above all, strong. The wedged, through-tenon joints of the legs and the rungs will never loosen, making for stools that will last a lifetime. Shown here 31 inches high, in cherry and maple.

Subway Rocker

Subway Rocker

This chair goes with "Over The Top" (see Special Projects).  The seat was discarded from a Subway sandwich shop, and the framework is painted built-up plywood. 

Michael's Chair

Imagine being able to lean back in a chair without anyone yelling at you!  The back legs of this chair resemble a forked stick, and the triangulation which the seat provides between the two forks results in the strongest possible joint.  The back rest appears small, but it swivels and is shaped and located to form to your back at just the right place.  

Split-Back Chair

Split-Back Chair

Even a fruit crate fights gravity. This chair fights banality.

Struckman Chairs

Struckman Chairs

These chairs were designed to go with the Struckman's table (see tables), and their elegant design was inspired by a small sketch the owner drew.  The smooth, sweeping joint between the back legs and the crest rail is my favorite part.
