The design and construction of these chairs requires timber of not less than two inches in thickness. This thickness is of great benefit when it comes to the sculpting of the seat which is at the heart, both structurally and visually, of the chair. Because of the substantial thickness, a lot of grinding out and scuplting can be done to the seat with no loss of strength or integrity. It also allows for artistic expression in a way that thinner stock would not, adding a visual dimension to the chair and acting as a canvas to display the wonderful grain found in the wood.
The result is a beautiful and supremely comfortable seat that is rarely associated with solid wooden furniture.
