Project Description:
This project was inspired by an interesting chair I saw while visiting the Halifax Citadel fort. After doing extensive research on it, I came up with a couple of names including Savonarola chair or Dante chair. I modified the design to suit some different species of wood and modern hardware to go for a more contemporary look.
