Rohlfs Charles Style Desk Chair High Back Recreated Mahogany PBS Roadshow

Earlier this year I recreated the Mahogany Charles Rohlfs High Back Desk Chair for a client who also saw the original chair appraised on the PBS Antique Roadshow several years ago.

The chair is a difficult project, both in joinery and carving, but also in proportions. I thoroughly enjoyed the challenge of this commissioned project, and look forward to building additional copies, as well as recreating other Charles Rohlfs Style pieces in the future.

If you are looking for someone to build a similar project for you, I have this Chair Commission listed in my Etsy.com store

Thanks for reading,
