Axis Chair/Bench

Guild mg 7254

Originally commissioned by fellow Guild member Todd Campbell, this line will now be a production item.  

The cherry for Campbell's original commission came from his family farm in Michigan, where it had been sitting in a barn for decades, awaiting it's destiny as Campbell's dining room seating.  I have a strong affinity for Danish cording, so I immediately proposed it as a seating material.  The second set  was commissioned--along with a table--by Mockingbird Domestics, a new furniture store on South Lamar that supports local makers.
