I have not posted a project on here for awhile but I have been busy. I have been working on a Cherry Kitchen for a friend that I will be posting soon and have also been traveling a lot with my day job. I have been working on this for some time now when ever I get a chance. I have been using some of the leftovers from my kitchen to make this. It is made from Quarter sawn White Oak with a clear shellac finish. The tough thing about making this chair was the bowed arm rests. I took 7 pieces of 1/4” thick material and laminated them together over a form to produce the curve. The back rest can be reclined into 3 different positions. It is really comfortable. I think I will make another one…Actually I think I will take a nap!! I hope you like it!

Nice looking Morris chair. I especially like the bowed arms. Even the upholstery is a good match. Enjoy a comfortable sit and thanks for sharing.

Very nicely done—particulary the bowed arms that make your project quite distinctive.
