Student Desk Chair

Submitted by BlueRose on Wed, 04/23/2014 - 15:50

I found your plans for the child storage chair while searching for chair designs to build a student desk for a customer. With the addition of the table to the chair it works well. The wood is from a local sawmill where I work so I can cut it to my specifications right from the log. The wood is Curupay or Bolivian Rose Wood and changes color from brown to red from the sun light. The finish is shellac and varnish. While taking the first one to the customer another person ask for 2 so it looks like I may be making chairs for a while.....
