This is my signature Arbor Morris chair that I just finished in leather and looks outstanding. This piece is quartered Oak with a hand rubbed lacquer that was dye stained.

You make a nice chair. That has “take a nap” written all over it. I have one on the back burner and just saw an interesting tenon for the arm rest. One of these days.

Thanks everyone. I have build Morris Chairs for going on 19 years now. My Arbor Bow Arm Morris Chair I designed and have been building for about 6 years now. They are selling now which is good and This chair is starting to be the piece that is getting me some credit after all of these years of being a furniture maker.

To answer your question DocSavage45 I have a great upholster in the Asheville area that does mu upholstery wood. I think I will stick to furniture making …..Thanks Everyone ,Brian

Great chair. I like the design, as well as your choice of leather. The dye color, I believe, is spot-on.
