About Brave

Everyone talks about bringing jobs and manufacturing back from Asia. But how can you compete with sources that make chairs cheaper than we can buy materials?  The Brave design combines what pundits term HIGH TECH/HIGH TOUCH. The HIGH TECH part of the Brave design is its nest. I spent months designing the nest, which is how the parts fit together onto a sheet of material to optimize yield and reduce waste. There is not much scrap after cutting out the Brave parts. 90% of Brave parts are cut from high grade birch plywood with a CNC machine in ONE operation. The machine cuts the sides, cross braces, corner blocks, mortises and other details depending on the version. The Brave design eliminates the need for many machines, operations, labor, routing, jigging and planning necessary for ordinary designs. For the HIGH TOUCH part, the chair is assembled,  carefully sanded by hand, and inspected. For the seat and backrest, we basket weave remnant (post industrial) seat belt material. The customer chooses belt colors and wood finishes from the many choices that are available.  So the beauty of the Brave Design is not only a perfectly proportioned, highly durable and comfortable chair, it is a chair that allows American workers to compete with low cost imports.
