Bodged Chairs

Ash chair with kambaa (palm leaf) seating.
The steam bent back rests can be varried in thickness to be rigid or have a high degree of give.

I like the wych elm seating best, but wych elms and permission to skin them are hard to find. I like the kambaa too but it's a bit African for me, so I've developed this bendy slat seating style. It allows for a pleasing buttock roll.

All chairs are made without glue or nails. I use green wood and natural shrinkage to make the joints as taught by Mike Abbot.

The first chairs I made were 8 years ago, and have been in constant use without any damage.

Ash chairs with lime and wych elm bark seating, made by Jazz at Mike Abott workshops.
