Upholstered wing chair

This is my new wing chair. The legs are in the Chippendale style in cherry. The overall height is 47.5 inches. The fabric is 'Historic Deerfield flamestitch'.

The joints in the frame are either mortise and tenon or dovetails. I've never been a fan of dowels, even in upholstered furniture.

very nice work. I clicked on a link from a fine woodworking knots forum and landed on your blog. Love to see such fine woodworking being done by a hobbyist.

I like that you have included upholstered pieces. I really am wanting to pick up the know how of properly framing a piece to be ready for upholstery.

Keep it up!
