Jack, I aspire to build chairs like you! Curtis' work is sublime, and you have done his design justice ... oh boy, have you ever! :)

I do have a question about the curved back. Everything is rived, which I expect, but there appears to be quite some run out at one end. Does this affect the strength at all? With the spindles flexing, does this impart extra tension to this area?

Regards from Perth
