Editor’s note: This chair chat is a work in progress, and we need your help to finish it. We have a beautiful chair but only had two minutes to talk because Chris had to go to the bathroom (number two).
We ask you readers to finish this Chair Chat in the comments. Please keep it civil but also don’t hesitate to post something funny, we all like to laugh.
You don’t see a disclaimer here that salty language will follow – because we didn’t get around to any yet. Feel free to add some.
Chris: Hi guys, let’s do one last very short chat as I have to make a poo.
Rudy: No worries, how about this beauty:
Klaus: Wow, look at that chair. Such a nice stance!
Rudy: I agree, it is very beautiful!
Chris: It is so beautiful that I want to sleep with it.
Klaus: The seat has a nice shape.
Rudy: Yes, it does. Is that elm?
Chris: OK guys, I am going now. Talk later.
Rudy: Alrighty. Bye!
Klaus: Talk later guys!

The spindles have good fleam… I mean if you were going to use the chair for that
I’m thinking there’s a slight health hazards here. A mouse could easily trip over the stretchers. Either the legs are too long or the feet are too short, maybe both or neither. Not that I dislike long legs which can come in very useful on the shave horse, or maybe a nuisance on the fastback style horse.
I dislike stretchers so close to the ground. It makes housekeeping more difficult.
Yeah, the maker definitely did not have a Roomba in mind when designing that. I can picture a Roomba doing an Austin Powers on a steamroller type U-turn trying to escape that thing.
Housekeeping is overrated.
A battery powered leaf blower comes in handy, both for cat hair and sawdust.
Who stole the saddle from the seat?
Doubtless a long-legged thief.
Ha ha! The sheep wanted his skin back.
I actually like that chair, but the two outer spindles on the back put it just a little off. It’s like an attractive person with an outturned eye.
Happy holidays, everybody!
It would be even more attractive if those outside spindles continued straight down to the seat.
Would be cool to try!
Best in show.
I wonder why the maker left them like that. Maybe he ran out of long sticks? Was it an afterthought? It seems to have been intentional, maybe he/she wanted to try something different than the rest.
I agree. What about a y branch part of which would go all the way to the crest rail and the other side goes up to the arm. I envision it looking like the back on that one Hans Wegner chair but in the corners.
It looks pinched. It makes me worried that the chair will follow me up when I stand.
It looks like a previous sitter was a right-sided sitter, leaning heavily on the right arm rest. It’s kind of wonky, in a had a few too many at the pub, listing to starboard kind of way.
I think the original owner was Chris’s half brother who was born with only a right butt cheek (we’re still looking for the other half brother with the left butt cheek) as the whole chair has a strong list to that side. The legs on that side are standing proud of the seat.
I like the chair a lot as it exhibits the ‘wonky’ look of a traditional stick chair made from as found parts. The arms tend to follow the seat shape and the angles are near perfect to the eye. Very natural and organic.
Unusual. It strikes me as a chair designed for an extremely long-waisted person; tat is, someone with a long distance between their bottom and their arm pits. The outer spindles are iike the wings on racing seats in a Porsche Turbo – they help to keep you in place on sharp turns. But, I agree about the danger to mice posed by the low stretchers. PETA may send pickets and Internet trolls at any time, in protest.
Not to forget all the poor Roombas getting stuck under there…
Listed to the right, and they didn’t make iy to the bathroom on time more than once.
The infamous Welsh Wet Fart Finish (WWFF).
If you say Welsh Wet Fart Finish in Welsh it’s an onopatopoeia. Actually it’s an onomatopoeia in English, now that I say it aloud.
At least one was a powerful fart. Looks like it resulted in some tear out. Needed a tighter chipbreaker maybe.
I assumed it was salty bit residue. Have seen that melt into old finishes. Almost like it ferments into alcohol to burn into old shellac.
Pretty hot farting in the auld family bum, there are distinct burn marks to the right buttock area. Very period.
It’s such a beautiful chair. I shall call it (borrowing from other commentators) “The Listing Tower of Peesa”
I dig how you reserved a spot for johncashman73. Waiting with anticipation here.
I don’t know what I’ve done to recieve such an honor. If I were there in person, I would buy a round of drinks.
A chair chat drinking meetup? I would buy the second round! Would probably be the greatest thing ever.
We should really (I mean, for real) have a Chair Chat Drinking Meetup one time. Chris, Rudy and me have all been practicing quite a bit together in that segment. It’s a pretty great combination.
If you guys ever find yourselves over here for a visit…it should happen. I feel like you guys would get the audience so wound up. And with drink involved it might be a raucous time.
I’m all for an evening drinking beer and talking about chairs!
Oh, we’re coming over alright!
If this blog had a best comments award, you would win hands down. Please keep it up, witty people like you are precious.
I think your auto correct accidentally changed precocious to precious.
Yes you are chairished here.
Quite a sturdy specimen, large enough for a three hundred plus, right leaning sitter (no political inference here)!
Actually, I rather like the splay of the two outer comb spindles in contrast with the opposite splay of the arm spindles. That provides an element of style to what otherwise would be just a beefy stick chair.
I think the house is leaning one way, it’s either the chair or the floor.
It is quite a commodious chair.
Wouldn’t that need a big round hole in the seat?
More tear out.
Not too late for that. The stringers are low enough for the accessory.
It seems to be made for a person with short lefs and a long torso. Like 2:1 torso:leg ratio. That or it was a very early prototype Recaro for a horse and sport buggy.
The three dark spots in the seat form an almost perfect triangle. I pose the question was this chair sat in by a nude and/or sweaty welshman/woman? Generations of same?
Proof of Illuminati.
Looks like the armbow is three pieces and those outer spindles would’ve come down right at the joint if they didn’t splay out?
With age (yours) you may want to consider adapting the chair, so you don’t have to leave the room in such a hurry.
Two different forces on the spindle back. The middle five spindles are under compression (pushed down) wile the two outer spindles are under tension (pulling force). I assume this is s strong back? Pretty ingenious engineering (even though it looks like a mistake to some).
I don’t get it. Chris can’t type and sit on the can at the same time?
I think there are too many distracting photos in his bathroom
Back it up, back it up.
Aye but mind the wall in back.
