Heart Back Arm Chair

Heart Back Arm Chair


Secondary Wood: Ash

Finish: Super Blond shellac and wax

The inspiration for this chair came from Sack's 10 volume set American Antiques. I scaled the chair from the photo, making only minor changes. I chose this chair as I like the overall form of heart backs. Since it was an arm chair, I wanted to work out the joinery process for the arms.
