Very nice! About how long did it take to make one?

It took about a month to 6 weeks for both of them. I still have a "real job" so I just get a couple Hrs after work and most of the weekend. If, or when, I get to do this full time It shouldn't take more than two weeks to built a couple.
Incredeble work!!! I want that chair for my daughter,but it is not feasible. First she grow up, and seconr reason i live in Russia. And this work is very expensive.
Sory for my english.

Это Вам большое спасибо за ваши работы :-)

WOW! I've only just discovered this website, and this is beautiful, Maloof-inspired work. You must have been psyched to meet him last year. Do you have any other details you can share on the tray lever? I think I sorta get it from zooming in on your picture, but the spring orientation is the opposite of what I would have guessed so I'm a bit stumped.

Thank you for you comments Pat. My wife and I visited Sam Maloof last year and had a great time. Sam and the guys that work with him were great.
On the tray latch, it you look close on the arms you will see 3 notches cut on the bottom side, the latch lever fits into them and the spring holds the lever in place until you squeeze the spring. I don't have any pictures that are more detailed but I will take a couple and try to post them here.
