    Having never done a chair ... did a prototype and let it be used a while to be sure it 'fit' right ..

    Great design and execution, Robert!

    One question: Did you use real ebony for the black inlay? The reason I ask is that we did "ebony" inlay on some pieces at a commercial shop I worked in for a while. The "ebony" we used was 1/8" tempered hardboard.

    Bill, yes sir, it is the real thing ... gaboon ebony .. very black, and ... VERY expensive. The store where I purchased ... the sales guy said when he rang it up ... man, you better save the sawdust when you cut this one.

    for that wonderful wood source. BTW, I believe there is a term for a log that is sawn but, kept together like those four shown. Can anyone jog my memory?
