First, let me apologize for my photography skills – I’m going to have these re-shot by a professional after Christmas. This chair was built for a friend who I work with. He and his wife really wanted to buy one from me, but couldn’t justify spending that much money (pbhhht! – newlyweds). So I told his wife on the sly that I would build him a chair for $1.00 – and she could give it to him for Christmas…, she basically had no choice in the whole thing. I was just over at his house the other night and commented that his old recliner was a piece of crap – he lamented that he couldn’t get a Morris chair at this point in his marriage (ba ha ha ha!) – He should have a good holiday!
