Morris chair made of birch with amber shellac finish. Through tenons in legs and arms. I used birch because i had a pile i bought for next to nothing at an auction at Keim Lumber. I used brown suede for the upholstery.

Like the wood color hue but did you mean ‘ottoman’? :)

Looks good. I’ve been wanting to build a Morris chair for a while. Unfortunately, my wife says there is no place in the house for one…

Nice chair! I’ve been looking at Morris Chair designs now for a year, and the one you built is almost exactly the design I want to build. Thanks for posting.
