Having built a pair of Bow Arm Morris Chairs with my wife, we needed the matching Ottoman for each chair. I built these at home after returning from American Sycamore Woodworkers Retreat with the finished chairs. These are also solid quartersawn white oak made entirely with true mortise and tenon joinery. The cross stretchers protrude through the legs with a true through tenon. Not the easiest thing to get right and make look good, but I’m pleased with the outcome. The finish is wipe on tung oil varnish. The leather upholstery work was done by professionals at Ackermans in the Chicago area.
