« Part 1: Frame dry assembly Part 2 of Morris Chair In Process series Part 3: Frame is Done!! »

Finally got enough time off to get some more work done on the chair and post some photos. The frame is totally done as far as construction goes. Right now the major assemblies are apart for stain and poly. I’ll post more photos when it goes back together.

Looks great. How hard is it to build? Are the arms bent laminated? How did you build the legs? Are you using plans? Where did you get the plans? Are you making the seat & back padded parts or are you buying them and if so where?

I know that is a lot of questions, but I like the Morris chair very much and want to build one. I need all the information I can get. I have plenty of quarter sawn white oak in the shop.
Thanks fr any and all the information you can give me.

It’s definitely not beginner level. The arms are laminated and clamped over a curved buck. The legs are laminated from 3/4” stock and then jointed/planed down to the finish 2 1/4” SQ size. The plans are from Wood Magazine. I’ve made a few modifications to the base design just because I can’t leave anything alone. :-) My wife is making the cushions. She is a former professional costumer so sewing is a passion for her. You could also have any local upholstery shop make the cushions.
