    Hi Shaun! Love the build – excellent work as usual. Question – at 2:06 in the video there are 4 glue cauls on the bench. Where did you get them, etc.

    when viewers watch these videos, they do so to learn. I don't understand why some show there videos so fast you cant learn anything. I rather watch two part video slow than one so fast you cant see anything. nice chair though.

    What a beautiful chair. Great proportions, wood choice and everything. I might radius a few of the edges a bit, but that’s just me. I think it actually looks better with the stronger angles like you have it.

    Some very nice stuff being made here. I like how you make such good use of the limited space in your shop. Is there any significance in the British Union Jack on the wall?

    Great design, I'm in the process of building something similar based on your design, just need to assemble it now, hoping to borrow someone's domino joiner. What are the things you use to clamp at an angle?

    One of the nicest chair I have seen built on YouTube, seriously great video. I have not seen plans for this one on your website, but wondering if you are planning to make some in the future? If so you have your first customer.

    Great build, you've inspired me to make something similar! I've got all the parts of my plywood prototype made and just need to attach the legs to the seat, but not sure how to accurately cut the dominos in the legs and seat? I see you using a protractor, but can't really tell exactly what's going on? What angle are you using and how do you mark out domino placement and transfer it from the legs to seat?
    Thanks so much for any help, love your work!

    Oh man. That's cool. I dig the angled chamfer you did on the arm rests.
