In this next pictures, you can see the 2 seats with the notches in them for the Maloof joint. I've also cut out the blanks for the front and rear legs, and begun the initial shaping.

Look at the grain! I can't wait to start grinding the seat to shape, thats when the grain really comes to life.

Here is the Maloof joint designed by Sam Maloof to attach chair legs to a seat. It is a exposed mortis and tenon joint that really locks in the leg to the seat. This type of joinery is about the strongest leg joint i've come across.
