« Part 13: Seat Part 14 of Morris style glider series Part 15: Backrest spacers »

The chair back is assembled and temporarily put in place. The holes were drilled for the removable dowel that allows adjustment of the back. Some sanding still required for the back assembly and then on to the glider mechanism! The end is near… I can taste it!

Well, except for the cushions. Have had the fabric for about 3.5 years. Need to purchase the seat foam (FYI, Home Depot seems to carry the cheapest upholstery foam…). The wife, who is a hobbyist sewist will be helping with those.

WOW, that is a cool build. Where did you get plans? (Just read all your blog posts…..should have done that first. I’m going to Wood Magazine archive now) I’m starting a glider chair build and I would love to have plans.

Looks like you are doing a GREAT job! Thanks for sharing!

Hope you find it. If not, I downloaded the originals and can send them to your email. I made my own modifications based off of those plans. Good luck to your build and look forward to seeing it if you post!

Have your say...
