Here is a better photo of my new office chair. I have been wanting to put one of my chairs on an office base for some time now. I chose my Cod Rib Arm Chair as it is the most modern of my designs. I am very happy with how it looks and feels. The chair has height adjustment, variable tension to the tilt and the tilt can be locked in the up right position. Other bases are available. Go to my website or contact me for more details.
I returned home from the show last night and now it is time to unload the van. The show went well and I was very happy with my booth. Last year I used a friends booth but she moved away so I had to figure it out for myself this year. I think the end result was better than a commercial booth. Anyway, I had a two brand new pieces. The Waltham Bench and the Cod Rib Office Chair (that my son, Ben, is sitting in). Any of my chairs can be made with this type of base if desired. I sold one over the weekend with a cherry and ash Waltham Arm chair as the chair portion. This week, I will photograph the bench and office chair and get them up on my website. Now it is back to work to finish up some overdue projects.
It's about 1/2 hour until show time on Sunday for the second day of the Vermont Fine Furniture and Woodworking Festival in Woodstock, Vermont. Here I am in my booth. I took this with my computer which is facing out of my booth. I know, goofy picture, but technology sometimes gets the better of me.
I could not wait to mention these two new pieces that I am finishing up. I have not properly photographed them yet so here is a shot from my finishing room. I finally found some office chair hardware that I like and mounted my Cod Rib Arm Chair on it. It is a great feel and an interesting look. I picked the Cod Rib chair for this first experiment because of its modern airy lines. It seems to just float above the minimal black hardware.
The bench is my first one in my Waltham style. Later pics will show the how nice the traditional stretcher looks on this design as well as the stretched out crest rail.
Both of these designs were a bit of a mystery as to how they would look, so I am very happy that they look great, if I do say so myself. I will be taking these to Woodstock, Vermont next weekend to the Fine Furnishings Show. September 26,27.
