Morris chair. White oak. M&T construction. Finish is a witches brew of Watco and polyurathane, wiped on.

Beautiful! And so very well upholstered. The finish is super; I’m quite sure it’s very comfortable for you.

A Morris chair has to be one of the most satisfying projects to build. You did a fine job on the chair and ottoman. I would like to see some detail pictures of the side slats.

Thanks for sharing.
