Woodworker: Yoshimitsu Motoyama

Motoyama has long admired the stylish strength of bridges. The construction of this hard-maple chair (47-1⁄4 in. deep by 28-3⁄8 in. wide by 36-1⁄4 in. tall) reflects that admiration. The curving main frames that support the chair are bentlaminated from 5⁄32-in.-thick maple strips and connected with mortise-and-tenon joinery. The finish is oil. The dyed cane seat is woven in the style of Danish furniture designer Hans Wegner.
