Re: mid-century modern lounge chair

isabeln, thank you. The arm is made from a piece of 8/4 stock, so the bend is part of the the arm that I left at full thickness. I used a forstner bit to create the curve and then rounded it with a rasp. The arm is then attached to the front post using a 1/2 inch oak dowel joint, and then shaped smooth. I found the Sam Maloof Profile DVD as well as Scott Morrison's video on building a Maloof style side chair helpful for some techniques, although the style is a bit different.

Re: mid-century modern lounge chair

Thanks for everyone's comments. I didn't have plans for the chair. I looked at lots of photos on various auction sites like 1stdibs and Lauritz that showed the chair from a variety of angles, and I was able to work out the dimensions. I made the seat height about 15 inches at the front of the chair--it sits pretty low. Overall height it 30 inches and its 24" deep.
