My wife wanted new chairs for our sunroom. I wanted to make two Morris chairs and matching ottomans. So began a really fun project. The plans are a slight modification of those published in Wood MAganzine.
We are two very different people: big and petite do not fit equally well in the same chair. The solution was to scale her chair down 1” in all relevant dimensions. The wood is red oak. I made the bent arms by laminating 1/4” layers. They do recline, but so far both chairs have remained in a single position for reading. The finish is a mission stain, Danish oil and wax. We had the upholstery made locally.
