the eames is a pretty good chair... have sat on it many times and it is quite comfortable. i have not sat in the new "taller" version, but the original is best for someone 5'9'' or shorter. i am 5' 10'' and the original is just a little short

I hear you. I'm 6'6" and the original doesn't work for me either. I'm interested in trying out the taller version but I'm not sure the extra two inches will make enough of a difference.

I love that "Piochair" has become a thread meme at this point.

Let it never be said that I don't contribute to this forum.

5.7k selling price for the original Piobchair. Please, do not settle for a copy! The reasons are numerous.

Sign it, toss in a bottle of your best wine and a cat and you have a deal.

I can do all of that but the cat. One does not sell family members.

If I could, I would. No warranty and no returns, and selling price would be symbolic.

Couple other things to watch out for that can help to distinguish handmade and machine made. I don't mean to imply that machine made is bad, it can and often is very good if done properly, but handmade is handmade.

It becomes an expensive proposition, that most manufacturers will decline, to start including things like miter edge dovetails or full blind dovetails into casework, but they were part and parcel of high quality casework some time ago (like 200 years ago) and still in quality furniture in some areas.

If you will recall what the case looks like from the page or two prior, this is a set of miter edge dovetails on the inside of the case. They show cleanly like a plain miter, but a bit more structure to them.





Here is the finished outside of the case as well



Drywall work is next....oddly enough I enjoy doing that, but waiting until next week as I plan to do some painting.

Beautiful stuff, SG. I hope you're not looking to move anytime soon. The next owners will either receive an itemized costing list of enhancements with a link to this thread, or find gaping holes scattered throughout the house.

Thank you! Hah, every once in a while my wife and I debate that as she would love to move to southern california. Mostly I just hope they would appreciate woodwork enough to keep it.

Which do you guys prefer? The Chair by Hans Wegner



Or the captains chair by Nakashima

I go back and forth depending on my mood.

Any inspiration pictures for mcm designed houses (and specific rooms). I'm trying to convince my fiancé away from "rustic modern." 

 

Could be a fun inspiration type activity for this thread considering the dizzying amount of arguing lately

Not going to lie, for a good second, I seriously considered requesting something like that when he and I spoke about possibly making something. :embar:
