One of the people viewing my blog decided to build his own Steltman chair. His name is Christian, and he wrote:
"Similar to your calculation it definitely hasn't paid out in term of money if you include the hours I spent at the workshop. But this is of course besides the point, because I really enjoyed these hours! I went every Thursday evening from 6-9 pm to the community center where they have a really nice shop and a professional carpenter, who helps you with all your questions - what a great public service!!"
Christian's chair turned out fantastic! He made it using European Walnut, a great choice, as it has excellent figuring and character! It makes mine look lifeless...
Great job Christian! Here are the photos he sent;
