|My cowhide and wenge Roorkee chair.|
I chose to make this chair as a Christmas present, because despite its refined look, it is a relatively simple build. A determined hand tool user could make all of the wooden parts for this project in one day. The other thing that makes this a great gift, is that this chair lends itself very well to modifications and creativity in design. There are lots of different options that have been done to this chair, and there are lots of ways to try out things that haven't been done before.

Wonder of wonders, this chair won the Best Overall Gift! You can see photos of all the winning projects here. I couldn't believe it, I have never won anything in a woodworking contest before. I was extatic!

I would like to extend a big thank you to the MWA for hosting this fun contest, thank you to the judges for being so kind to my project, thank you to my sister Janet for giving me the impression she likes the chair, and especially thank you to Gorilla Glue for the box of goodies.
