The maple chairs are adorned with walnut accents. Pyramid plugs dress the chairs and in the case of the read leg, hide the two large screws which hold the seat to the legs.
The seat is rough carved on a CNC machine, then finished by hand with a travisher and scraper. The front corner is then rounded to ease the pressure on the back of the sitters thighs.
The Lakeview chairs were a joint design effort between myself and the client. Taking note from Nakashima and well as Windsor construction the clean and modern design is a hybrid of styles. Simple and well executed details make this an extraordinary chair. My favorite detail is the slight curvature of the walnut splats, which are cut from one wide board to simplify the wood grain image. Made of Sugar Maple with Black Walnut accents. Finished with linseed oil, Waterlox varnish, and wax.
