After being somewhat dissatisfied with the results of my previous two attempts at a chair, it took me a while to attempt it again - sixteen years, to be exact. The result is this, built in cherry, ebony, stainless steel, nickel-plated aluminum, and nylon monofilament line. The weaving of the nylon and stainless was especially challenging, taking some 40 hours to complete. The finish uses a gel stain with a lacquer top coat.
The Serpentine Chair won the "Peer Award" and "Best in Show" awards at the 2009 Northern Woods Exhibition in Edina, Minnesota.
