This tufted wood chair is made with walnut and white ash. Each diamond section is individually cut, hand-shaped, sanded, and then assembled. The edge pieces are angled slightly to provide contour and depth. The buttons are carved from a dowel and penetrate the back side. The legs are shaped to resemble cow hooves, paying homage to this plant-based leather piece.

While your eyes may see cushioned leather, the piece is made entirely from wood.

Seth Peter is a woodworker, sculptor, and technology enthusiast who loves to combine all three ingredients in his work. He is currently exploring tufted wood creations and works out of the Twin Ignition Startup Garage in NE Minneapolis.
