I want to make a morris chair with bowed arms. However, I am at a crossroads:
1. Veneer strips – these appear to be pretty expensive from woodcraft. would you cut yourself on the bandsaw? Is there another store that has them cheaper? My resawing skills aren’t that great – I tend to get some waves on my veneers. Perhaps I need to work on perfecting this technique.
2. Steam bending – this appears to require some additional equipment necessary to steam. Also, failures/breakage is always a problem.
I couldn’t find a blog on here where someone documented how they made a similar chair. If anyone knows of a book/blog that discusses the process of creating these bows, please let me know. Also, if there is another technique I haven’t mentioned, please share.
Always appreciative of your feedback. Best, Buck
