Terrible photo, sorry.

This is my interpretation of Charles Rohlfs chair. I was inspired to make this after seeing a copy by another woodworker and then reading the story about the valuation of this chair. I secretly hope that in a 100 years this chair may be worth something as well. (-: It is made from Ipil with an oil finish. All tennons are through tennons. The seat can be removed by taking out the pin at the back and sliding off. I did this to make it easier to wax. There are no nails or screws used in the chair.
