Carving a nicely creepy chair back on the gargoyle chair

My current labour of love is to reconstruct my 1994 gargoyle chair into a new thronereal version with much better arm and back support. I have a special fondness for the original but I have to admit it has always looked much better than it felt to sit upon.


Here is the original chair as completed in 1994. It's one of my favourite things I have made.


Here's my first design sketch that shows how I was hoping to re-imagine it.

...and here's another more developed design.


Well, partly after. Here is where I am with it after a few weeks of work.


and back

Looking good!
