Lots of new things to learn with this project. The bowed back stretchers, the hinges, and the through tenons – all new to me! And it is comfortable.

Quarter sawn oak throughout.

A morris chair is on my short list for upcoming projects. I like your idea for the adjustment. I want to do some kind of mechanism that will allow for me to adjust the recline while still seated. Still thinking on that one though.

Your work is beautiful. I’ve added you as a buddy, if that’s okay. There are so few women wooodworkers around.
