My first chair. This was done in traditional pine with a shellac and satin poly finish. Through mortise and tenons are typical for this style. My wife made the cushions.

The color is very even for pine. Did you seal it with shellac first? There are a lot of cool little details in this chair.

Great Chair. Is the design original?

Great piece. Chairs are so difficult to do and this turned out terrific. Really like the design elements a lot too! Thanks for sharing.

Very nice chair. I’m looking for some plans to make a Morris chair. Hopefully I’ll get it done this year.

Karson, the design elements are a combination of widely used decorative designs in New Mexico by the “carpentieros” of the 17th century. It is a combination of Spanish and Native American influences.

when I first saw it I thought of Ben Cartwright on Bonanza.. that probably fits with my image then.

Very nice work. I recently ordered a couple early NM furniture books from Woodworkers Supply and am looking forward to doing more research and designing/building some pieces. I lived in southeast NM for the majority of my life and really do like early NM furniture.
