Here is my Stickley slant arm Morris Chair. The chair is built to the original specifications of a #369, and is made from quartersawn white oak. The ladder back is curved, and made from solid 8/4 stock. The backrest is adjustable with a pair of oak pegs.
I made an ottoman with double lower cross rails, so it is comfortable even if your feet are tucked under it. There are two key challenges to a chair like this. The slanted arms create some angled joinery, and using laminated leg stock with no visible glue lines in the through tenons is a bit of a trick. I made the cushions at a leather sewing class, which was a fascinating process.
