Thanks guys. This was a fun project. Not extremely hard to model or cut out, but very hard to figure out the various angles and lengths because I didn't model the chair in any true 3D program. This was designed entirely from some 2D sketchups in Aspire.

Here is a completed chair in butternut, with leather upholstery. Changed the dimensions and angles slightly on this chair to make it more comfortable.

Russell
You would have made Hans proud any time.
Had the CNC machine been available in his time, I am convinced he would have used it.
He was never afraid of trying something different.
Very very well done
Cheers
