no previous part Part 1 of Reclaimed Pine All-Weather Morris Chair series Part 2: From Library to Leisure - Layout, Ripping, and Cutting »

Hi all,

I’ve been working on this Morris chair for the past 3 weeks and keeping pictures and my “blog entries” on imgur but I just realized that LumberJocks is a great place to keep the journey.

I will be moving over a few entries at a time whenever I find the time.

This is my first piece of furniture that is not a shop piece and it’s my first project that I’m finishing with something other than mineral oil and wax.

These are the plans I’m using/used: If I recall correctly the only thing I’ve done differently is the finish.

Well, thanks for reading! The project will start in the next blog entry.
