Woodworker: Timothy Brennan
This mahogany chair was made by tracing and measuring the design of an antique. Brennan reproduced the original’s carvings on the splat, crest rail, and ears; however, he carved the knees based on those of another chair. The seat is upholstered with wool brocade over horsehair, and the chair is finished with aniline dyes and shellac.
