A couple of years ago after quite some DIY jobs I started my first woodworking project; a Morris chair.
I always liked them; a design classic to my idea, I found this one as a Sketchup plan. I have made some changes one of which is that I increased the seat angle; this makes it a lot more comfortable.
The original Morris chairs have an almost flat seat angle.
It is made of marple and wenge.

Great job, I like that combination of wood colors. (I think you need to make more so all your furniture matches – lol. A great way to get more shop time and justify some new tools.)

Thanks for posting.

Great looking Morris chair! I’ve seen this design before, and thought about building one—so you’ve given me some inspiration!

Very cool.
I’m working on a pair of different styled ones. Wish. I’d seen yours first. The darker wenge accents are really Nice.
