Bow-Arm Morris Chair re-designed by G.Stickley early of 20th century. I used plan & drawing(Blue Print) from “Arts and Crafts Furniture Magazine – Spring, 2015 Taunton ” and “American Furniture Design ”. Features are,

- Lock Miter Joint Leg ( 4 Sides Quarter-Sawn White Oak )
- Laminated Bow Arm ( 4 layers – Quarter-Sawn Board on Top )
- Aniline Dying – Oil based Pigment Stain – SealCoat – PolyCrylic – Wax
- Vinyl Leather ( Allante Seaweed AL-850 )

For more information, visit to my blog at http://inhimwoodworking.blogspot.com. ( This is Korean version, Sorry~~ ) or watch all photos on YouTube ( https://youtu.be/6nnYvXypwZo ).

I hope it is useful to build up this gorgeous chair for your own.

Great looking Morris Chair. They can be fun and challenging projects. I really like using locking miter joints, they glue up quite well.
Thanks for sharing.

You did a fantastic job on the chair and video. I have the wood for mine, hopefully I can start in the winter. Expect a few questions on the bow arm and cushions.

Looks really nice. How do you fasten the bowed arms onto the chair sides? I’m making one of these without a plan and am getting to that part of the project….
