    Green Chair

    Built from a picture, came out ok. The support for the armrests was sawn and box jointed. If I make another I'll do a bent lamination.

    We're not built to sit long on hard chairs. Was going to upholster it but changed the plan. We use a loose chair cushion, cheap, easy, revisable if not quite right.

    The footrests (on top of the wheels) work well.

    Care to elaborate on the back joints. I'm guessing long screws or dowels. Just curious.

    I like the chair.
