Here’s a Morris chair I made some time ago.
I spotted some great looking Morris chairs on LJ’s and just had to make one for myself.
This one is made from birch and the upholstery is leather with foam inside.
Finished with oil.
It’s pretty simple, but I prefer this design over the more traditional one.
I got the inspiration for the design from some similar projects posted on LJ’s in the past.

I totally agree with the KISS principle. Very nice work

Very nice! Did you do it from plans? If so where are they from? Thanks

I bought these plans from, from which I got most of the basic measurements and some ideas as how to make some of the parts.
I then used that information as a base for this design I did myself (although heavily based on other members projects).

To answer your question, I don’t have any real “plans” for this, just some (vague) drawings with a bunch of writing, measurements and markings on them…

Have your say...
