Waltham Arm Chair
I built this design using a mix of traditional and modern techniques in order to give you a chair that is rich in detail and also comfortable and built to last lifetimes. The hand shaped parts are interesting to the hand and eye. This chair incorporates my Floating Back design, that is to say that the back is allowed to flex independently of the arm rail. It could be your favorite chair.
Below is an arm that has been worn a bit with use. I can do some of this for you if you like when I am finishing the chair. I think it adds a lot of warmth.
