Phil, what’s the ebony infill for? Did you stop the leg tenons short? Still wedge them? Interesting build, look forward to seeing more!

Thanks.

Its called making lemonade from lemons: I got some tearout on the top side of the seat when drilling the mortises. In the spirit of Frank Loyd Wright, I built the furniture for my addition with specific design elements to complement the room design. One of those elements is cherry accented by black: black pulls on cherry doors, cherry window and door rosette blocks with circular black inlays, etc. These ebony inlays complement those design elements and fix a build error at the same time.

I believe that fits the description of a Craftsman.  Very nice idea.
