    I like that! I like it a lot! Notice that even though they use raw edges, the seats are scooped to shape. That is good!

    the 3 is a bit too much (3's company?).. and I doubt the rocker will work well, the rockers being canted like that.

    other than that, cool - as art - love seat concept.

    Such a waste that someone with superb woodworking skills chooses to fritter it all away. Sad, bigly.

    OP: Hmm, kinda like a catamaran; In flat seas, fine, but in any condition cause a torquing between hulls, the structure had better be able to take it. Same for the chairs.

    Now that I like. A classic form which is classic for a reason. Just as long as one takes care to make those 3 rockers either parallel or forming the same arc.

    And... from the same issue... Robert Galusha, outta Arizona.

    And example of how one can create something that is eye-catching, while also being functional and beautiful. This hybrid of Danish Modern and Windsor elements works quite well for me ---

    Another interesting piece. Nicely integrated and realized design. And so eye-catching... you'd never believe Michael Fortune was Canadian, eh? <G>

    Oh come now, step into the modern world.


    "Courting chair" eh? Another handy tidbit of information gleaned from the WBF! I remember seeing one in the Arts & Crafts style up in Friday Harbor (I think) a few years back and wondering if it had a name.

    I consulted with a company several years back on production engineering a line of very similar 'tab A into slot B' CNC-cut KD plywood furniture. The idea being: inexpensive; easy to move to the next apartment. They were pretty green, and resistant to doing a full business plan, so no idea if it went anywhere. If it did, that could be one of their products - though they were thinking of either prefinished panels (clear/gloss) or melamine or phenolic faced panels. Not my cup of tea... but maybe it's found a market.

    There’s a husband/wife co https://www.360fivedesigns.com/ in out state mn (new Prague) that does CNCd patio furniture, but out of some kind of plastic sheet. They’ve been going for 4 years now. Too millennial modernism for my taste, but functional.

    I can answer that one. NO... he has not placed an order with us for furniture. <G>

    I do have one furniture piece in the lineup, though. An outdoor bench, from native fir cut on the property.

    For outdoor furniture, I do rather like that stuff Hugh mentioned. Seems solid, conceptually. Details will matter. Prolly too modern for any house I'll ever own.

    I do have a client who wants some stools. She's seriously considering a set of these weirdos that I've always loved... with some modifications. Strange, but these Tage Frid beauties have become iconic. They're odd enough that I think I'll have to build a mockup before she decides. They might not be comfortable. I've never sat in one - so can't vouch personally --

    Stretchers which make me think of Escher, though not as tricky to build...

    I’ve made two. They are comfy to sit in. They are, design wise, “school projects”. It’s easy to make one that looks good, it’s hard to make them look the same, or look good together. And they take a relative lot of work to make if you follow Tage’s guide. And these instructions are , IMO, spaced for grading. Oh, and they aren’t particularly material efficient (I didn’t care, used $3 cherry from Habitat for Humanity)

    I used Indian Rosewood offcuts fir the stretcher wedges, I think they look nicer than the above - you get a really dark, but not black, wedge line. Cherry for the seat wedges. I think rounded planes that terminate into “square” corners look better than the rounded off ones.

    im not sure what table to match with.dont like the tage one

    Good to know about the comfort level. Hers would be for a 4-top island overhang. The only real alteration she's talked about is to have all the edges a tiny bit more 'eased' and less 'crisp'. You gave me an idea, though. One of her thoughts/concerns is that having 4 such eye-catching matching stools might be a bit too 'tailored' for her tastes. She's more into the 'eclectic', even deliberately (though carefully) mismatched look. We might take care of that concern by making each a different species. Cherry, Ash, Mahogany, Maple... say. I'll have to give that some thought. Or maybe even by varying just the wedge species. Thanks!

    I've been working from home through the whole COVID crisis and I have a windsor chair at the table that is my desk.

    I must admit I am starting to miss my padded office chair. Eight hours a day is not what this chair was designed for...
