I’ve been working on this Morris chair for the past 3 weeks and keeping pictures and my “blog entries” on imgur but I just realized that LumberJocks is a great place to keep the journey.
I will be moving over a few entries at a time whenever I find the time.
This is my first piece of furniture that is not a shop piece and it’s my first project that I’m finishing with something other than mineral oil and wax.
These are the plans I’m using/used: http://d2amilv9vi9flo.cloudfront.net/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/All-weather-Morris-Chair3.pdf. If I recall correctly the only thing I’ve done differently is the finish.
Well, thanks for reading! The project will start in the next blog entry.
