I plan on adding a stretcher between the legs at the bottom.. Do you see any improvements or suggestions?

add not one but two stretchers... one to each side...

be different.

Speaking of being different, I do like the random contrasting wood! You had mentioned painting it, it really looks cool as is Pat.

I Really like that design, and the foot rest is a neat idea. You did an excellent job too.

I agree with painting it now, a lot of slots to paint, maybe you can sub it out to the wifey to paint.

How would you incorporate that into the four legs?

Good morning, this tall cafe chair is my prototype.

Like it a lot Pat. After pondering on it and looking again, I agree with those that suggest leaving the random colored re-purposed wood look. Makes it very unique and eye catching.

FWIW, the only change I'd suggest is modifying the arms (at least one) to incorporate a beverage holder.

Design consideration:

Perhaps titling the arm rest down 3 degrees in the back.    Danl

They do tilt toward the rear already, my wife who is 5' 10" said it was just right for her. I think a chair like this will have many considerations depending on who sits in it. Thank you for taking the time to comment.
