This is the newest version of my MO Chair. This is actually my wifes but since my backdrop was up, I thought I would shoot it. Through conversations with past clients, and having sat in one for a few months myself, I tweeked the design a little. The major difference is the back. I switched from a ladder back to thin vertical slats. This way they give a little when seated. The reclining supports were moved to a dedicated piece of solid wood instead of being drilled into the arms. Other than a slight dimension adjustments, still the same proportions. I think I am going to start trying to sell these things on ETSY since I don’t believe my site gets enough traffic. I believe it to be a good design with an even better price. Please excuse my barrage of projects.

It looks like a solid design and construction. Barrage on.

Great chair rhett. No issues with the barrage here. I apologize for my being a noob, but how do you get the curve on your arm rails? I am assuming some sort of clamp job…Thanks for sharing.

Love the design and the craftsmanship… looks very comfy! Not your typical Morris Chair. Very nice grain in the arms.

Nice. Modern look but classic.
