Post Arm Chair plan

My name is Josh and I'm some what new to woodworking. I would rank my skill at novice to moderate. I've completed a few projects including a rocking chair. I have access to a woodworking facility and access to a very knowledgeable/capable Father and Uncle. I'm looking to make a few dinning room chairs. I found these chairs at a local restaurant and they are extremely comfortable. But, I'm have trouble finding plans for this chair. If anyone has a suggestion I would greatly appreciate it!

Prolly not gunna find Specific plans for that chair. Your gunna have to return to the restaurant with your trusty tape measure and camera and make your own plans. I must say you've picked a challenging project with the curved back and leg bracing and the lumbar back supports. If you pull this off you'll have learned a LOT!!!

Still Got ALL my Fingers!!!

As previously posted you are taking on an involved project, especially without plans, but you do have a "woodworking facility & knowledgeable relatives". Consider looking for that style chair but in an older (maybe damaged) condition to buy - say from the restaurant or a thrift store, yard sale, etc. to have an actual model to work from. Also your material, time, & effort maybe more costly than to just buy a few chairs. Be safe.
