A fairly wealthy client was in my shop the other day and saw the back cover of my FW magazine with the picture of the chair for $3400.00 and he said who in the he++ would put that much money into a chair that does not have any historic signifance such as a chair that came over on the Mayflower etc. I guess this got me thinking and in the 40 years of woodworking I don’t think I came across a client that would fork over that much money unless it were for a highboy or big intertainment center. Just curious. Certainly doesn’t look as difficult to build as some early American Chippendale ladder back chairs and doesn’t have any eye appeal , thats just my impression.
