    I am sure you are doing this to break the spirit of everyone else doing 3D work so you can have the market to yourself!

    very nice lighting.
    I'm wondering if that top back rest rod, is a bent piece of birch wood, or cut out a solid?

    thanks! Ben, you've got me there, either way, I've got the material on the top back rest running in the wrong direction...

    thats why i asked, I'm betting they steamed the wood and bent it, sometimes they will cut it out of 3 blocks and dove-tail it together, then carve down. I'm coming to like the seat stitching the most, especially the reflections of it. I really wish I had time to do this sort of trials with my set up Rhino4 + Maxwell 1.2

    I have just had a look at my own CH_24 chairs and in answer to Ben+_+ question the back rest rod is made from a single bent piece of wood, which in my case is maple not birch and as Peter acknowledges the grain is indeed horizontal, not vertical.
