Eames Lounge Chair _ Complete.
I got the Eames chair put together for the tour. The cushions from Hume Modern are excellent and it feels just like a new chair. I spent many hours with 0000 steel wool and teak oil refinishing the old rosewood. Its amazing how many stains, paint splatters, and scratches that process removes. Here is a pic of the condition before the refinish, the wood was really dry and light along with several blemishes.
In typical fashion once it got crunch time to finish things up for the homes tour I forgot to take pictures. So no process pics on this post. Here are some shots of the chair assembled, and yes it is as comfortable as it looks.
