This is a copy of an original Stickly Morris chair. It has an ottoman of my own design to go with it. The plans for this recliner are from pg117 of the book “THE FURNITURE OF GUSTAV STICKLEY” by BAVARO & MOSSMAN. LINDEN PUBLISHING INC. i think that the design was copied directly from a real STICKLEY chair. It is very comfy , it is so bad that no one can stay awake to watch a full TV show or read a book. The wood is mahogany. When I did the surface I did not use any sandpaper it was 100% hand planed and hand scraped. The finish is padded on shellac. All of the mortise are true through type and the pens are also full through.

You’ve done a great job Gary! I’m sure your wife is thrilled with it.

What type of wood is this…cherry?

Thanks for posting it.

Between this and that Maloof rocker I’d say you are a mighty fine chair maker! Great post, thanks

I’ve got this very chair in mind to replace the one that I’m sitting in now, so I’m favouriting your post. That’s a really smashing job that you’ve done.
