This was a straight up reproduction Stickley Morris chair, pretty much sticking to the one Bob Lang wrote about in Popular Woodworking #189. I’ve always wanted to make one of these, and finally I got the chance. I went for all the details; the slant on the bottom rail on the sides, real through mortises for the arms (as opposed to faking them with plugs), etc. It was good challenge and a lot of fun. A local upholsterer did a great job on her end, and the result works well in my house. Did I mention it is super comfortable? It is my go to “Im gong to sit down and read woodworking books” chair.
I’m blogging about this on my site with lots more pictures and info at http://dcwwoodworks.com/blog/2016/6/14/at-last-a-morris-chair .
Thanks for looking.
