« Part 2: From Library to Leisure - Layout, Ripping, and Cutting Part 3 of Reclaimed Pine All-Weather Morris Chair series Part 4: Stretching Keeps One Limber & Slat Attack »

First, a chair needs legs, right? If the chair were to ever come to life, legs would allow it mobility. How would you feel if you were a chair who was, against all reason and precedent, granted consciousness and life. I know I’d feel great! Amazing, perhaps.

Now imagine your first few minutes: First, staggering confusion asking yourself

“How can wood be conscious?”

then your next few minutes would be acute bliss while you internally exclaim:


Finally, and unfortunately, you then try to take a step forwards towards the unknown expanse of world which awaits your mental consumption and physical interaction.

“Egads!” you’d think. “I have no legs! My journey has come to an end before it had a chance to begin. Alas, what kind of cruel creator would build a chair without legs?!”

Not I, I say, not I.


The legs have a 5 degree bevel across the entire plane. This allows for the slanted arm rests which define the quintessential Morris Chair.
