On the Artist’s Chair

When I was in furniture school in 1998, one of the students brought in a little chair to do some restoration work on.  It was made from solid bird’s eye maple, which is very unusual;  normally that wood is used for veneering.  We reckoned that the chair had come from a church or a chapel.  Perhaps it was made to sit in the vestry, to be sat on.  I made a copy of it from oak.

I have it be a chair for the artist.
