This was a commission Carwyn received from his regional Eisteddfod, The brief involved designing and producing a Chair to celebrate the winner of the poetry competition with the victorious bard being given the Chair as their prize. The Chair is fabricated mainly of oak, a massive 20” wide 7’ tall board fills the back, with two walnut boards alongside. The seat is also one board, originally 2” thick, with both the seat and the back having to be flattened by hand plane. The two are joined by a hidden dado and bolts with threaded inserts, an impeccably strong joint. The arm/leg consists of two separate parts of steam bent oak laminated together, with stainless steel cables adding another dimension and detail. These are crimped at either end inside the lamination. The writing is 2013 in roman numerals and is a router based inlay.
