Queen Anne Back Stool, c. 1740, Philadelphia. Walnut with poplar secondary. Upholstered by Ralph Dermota (York, PA) using horse hair, etc.
I made this chair after measuring a chair Gene Landon made. According to Gene, he copied the original in the 1960s. I probably spent as much time developing templates as it took to build the chair. Other than shaping the legs, fitting the cross-stretchers proved to be the most time-consuming. Everyone who has sat in the chair comments on how comfortable it is! One picture shows my completed chair next to Gene's.
