This chair was made about on December 1st 2007 and was the first Morris chair I made with my own company. I did not have the money to buy the wood because I was trying to buy tools at the time so I worked for a couple of wood shops in the past and I was going to them to get any scrap wood I could get. The only wood I bought was the maple for the arms! I was using the chair and showing it at many art shows and was able to use it to sell others and was able to keep it in the end so it is in my house to remind me and also to see how much i have progressed since I started on my own. I can not tell you how many jobs I did during the recession in south Florida from any thing I could find just to show people what I could do. Funny to look back now! Thanks for looking but it is time to go make some dust.

I like the color contrast, you NEED to post more pictures of your work it’s great but I can see enough of it to suit me.
