This is a child sized morris chair that I built with my 7 year old son. I had always wanted to build one, and had actually begun milling some white oak to start one for myself. But my son was interested in building his own chair, so I put mine on hold and seized the opportunity to have some father/ son time. We simplified the design a bit for his chair. The arms are flat, no angles on the sides, and no through tenons in the arms. We used red oak on this one, and the dimensions were decreased to fit his size for the next few years (though my 2 year old daughter sits in it more than anyone). He did as much of the work as possible, and did most of the finish himself.
on a side note, it ended up being a great practice project for building my own morris chair. Hopefully I can get back to building it soon. Thanks for looking!
