My most ambitious project. Built from a plan. I didn’t like the fabric for the cushions once I had it on and have since redone it in brown vinyl.

Very nice job. I like the color and the quartersawn oak. I’ve built one of these myself and know how much work they are. Looks great!

I’m with you on the ambitious part… I’m working on one right now, think I bit off more than I can chew.
Great job! I love the through tenons on the arms… I’m still trying to figure out how to cut the little pyramids on mine!

This is on my future todo list as well. I love these chairs, you did an excellent job. One question: the arm rests, are they one piece, steam bent or did you do something else? The grain flows like one piece.

It is actually two pieces but from the top you can only see one. I glued an additional piece of wood at the front 6 inches of the arm making it double the thickness. I then made a couple of 45 degree angle cuts to give the arm the “bent” look.

Looks great Gary. Nice Job. A Morris chair is on my list of projects I want to do, but right now it’s pretty far down the list that keeps growing the more I look at all the great projects here on LJ.
Thanks for posting it.

Nice looking project. I agree about the fabric. It seems to distract from the beauty of the chair. Thank you for posting.

The grain is perfectly exhibited by your stain and finish choice. Thanks for sharing

I’m also gearing up for a couple of bow-arm Morris chairs. I really like your finish. Care to share the recipe?
