This version of the Morris Chair is based on the New Yankee Workshop plans with some modifications. First, I reduced the size of the slats on the sides to make it similar to the coffee table I built a few months ago. Second, I slightly reduced the dimensions of the legs by 1/4” each side to make it less heavy looking. Ther are a ton of mortises and tenons to make in this version but thankfully I have a mortising machine to help with that! The chair is made entirely of white ash with two coats of Minwax English Chestnut and two coats of polyurethane. The cushions are leather and boy is it comfortable! I will probably make an ottoman some time in the future, but I’ll have to wait until my other upcoming projects are completed.
