Nice job!  Is that a tie?  An old suit?  :)  Really love the upholstery and the beautiful clean lines.

Thank you thank you thank you!  I did look at the tutorial that deb recommended, “minis by kris”. Picked up a few tips but mostly I tried this industrial double sided tape that I happen to acquire.  This was the 2nd attempt on the cushion, first went in the garbage.

Thanks so much.  As miniaturists, that is the best compliment we can get.

Thanks. Not a tie although I did go through my ties and unfortunately most are too large a print.  I did find one tie that would be awesome as a cushion but I still wear it occasionally :ermm:

How is the wooden part of the chair made? This is incredible 

I’m not sure how to answer that, I mean I usually see a chair I like and think I can replicate it.  I study it, find measurements if posible and as many different angles of the chair.  Scale down the full size measurements and cut and sand the wood to size and glue it.  

I need to get better at taking progress pics.  I do have a pic of my latest chair frame in my furniture builds thread.  Thank you for checking out my work and your kind words.
