Morris chair build
Dear fellow woodworkers. I am fairly new to this craft but i already love it. I would consider myself an advanced beginer. I started building outdoor chairs and picnick tables but have started doing more inside furniture now and I love it!!!! To me there isnt many things that I enjoy more outside of spending time with my family and friends than to see a pile of plain boards be turned into a piece of furniture. With that being said I have a few questions for any one of you out there that would be willing to help. I know that this is the best place to go for help with woodworking projects just by seeing a few of the peices on here. I was wanting to build a slant arm morris chair and have noticed on all the plins I have seen it calls for the bottom side rail to be slanted. So what I was wandering first was why the slight slant? I asume its for looks but not sure. I was also wandering if any of you guys have ever built or seen one with out the slant and does it affect the look in any negative way? I am asking because Im thinking of doing it without it. Any info on this would be greatly appreciated. I was also wandering if I should finish all the parts before or after glue up. I have one more question I was wandering what online distributer is the best for ordering already surfaced boards. Like I said before any info on these matters would be very helpfull.
