Woodworker: Ken Katz
Inspired by the designs of Sam Maloof, Katz built this dining chair as part of a set of six chairs and a table. He made the chairs first, and says his goal was for diners to be comfortable sitting for long periods, while running their hands over the curves and angles. The crest rails are coopered, and the rear legs are swept back to prevent people from rocking backward. The chair measures 24 in. deep by 20 in. wide by 34½ in. tall; the wood is black walnut with ebony accents, and the finish is a Deft oil and polyurethane blend.
