Classic Low Back

A Lot of my pieces of work are inspired by the great Sam Maloof, this is no exception. The seat and highlights are curly maple while the legs arms and backrest are in African Mahogany. Joinery includes originaly maloof leg to seat joint, while the arm to leg joint are through wedged tenons. I have done this chair in many wood configurations, and i have to say this is definitely one of my favorites.
