Rhode Island Easy Chair

This is the  chair pictured in Norman's book. The chair was made in c. 1758 and is currently in the Metropolitan Museum of Art,  New York, USA

 Similar techniques used as in the Boston chair to create the frame.

Big difference, of course, this beauty needs to be upholstered.  First attempt, after much humming and awing.

The second crack at it. Better but with room for much improvement. Well, at least the chair looks 'in scale'.  Did wonder as it was being put together.  Looked a bit on the big side, it did.
