    Looks mostly figured to me

    I like what you're doing with some of the detail work there, the cut backs on the arms and the rectangular->round transitions on the back spindles are pretty neat looking and offer a nice counterpoint to the flowing organic look of the rest of the piece.

    Thanks for sharing!
