Ebony Chair from Australia


Ross from Brisbane Australia sent me these pictures of his latest wonderful creation.


Creating these shapes is a lot of work, but to do it in ebony? He won't be doing another!
The shaping was done with HNT Gordon high angle shaves, wonderful tools, and finished with scrapers.                      http://hntgordon.com.au/gidgee-spoke-shaves.html

  2. is this a famous chair design? I have seen an identical one on the internet or instagram but don't know where I found it.. if it is Ross's original design would you ask if he would share his website or info?

    1. Not last time I looked, you can get them direct from Terry in Australia. The shaves are well worth the wait. All the best, David.
