Just finished my latest commission. Soon to be Grandmother wanted a Slant Arm Morris Chair Rocker, to go with her other Arts and Crafts furniture. Fairly straight forward, just took the Slant arm chair that I already make and added some steam bent rockers to it. The back doesn’t adjust, like the chair does, but is set at a comfortable angle. Quarter sawn white oak. Quadrilinear construction on the legs. Mortise and tenon construction. Medium dark oak aniline dye, finished with tung oil/varnish homebrew.
Leather covered coil spring seat cushion. Back and seat are cushioned with foam wrapped in down and feathers. Very comfortable chair. Finished size is 32wx39dx40h. I may have to make one for myself someday.
