A couple of LJs were asking about the Morris chair in the background of my banister project….so here it is. I think I made this chair about a year and a half ago. It has some of the nicest figured quarter sawn white oak I’ve ever gotten a hold of.
The plans came from the book: Popular Woodworkings Arts and Crafts Furniture Projects.
It’s a whole lotta mortise and tenon joinery. This was the first attempt at Stickley’s old trick of laminating and veneering square legs to get the nice figure on all four sides. My little apprentice(not sure the hearing protection was necessary, but she loves to accessorize) and I did the jute webbing. Then I had a local upholsterer make the leather cushions. I’m glad I did because I met a really cool local upholsterer who works out of his garage just like me.
Finish is dark walnut danish oil and satin poly.
Now you know where I’m sitting when I’m typing all of my brilliant posts on LJs;-)
