Morris Chair

We built a 4 seasons room,, I needed a chair to read in by the fire.

This is definitely my most complicated project to date. The curved arms had me nervous,, buy my Grizzly band saw did a nice job cutting the veneers and I borrowed my dad’s drum sander which made sizing them to final thickness a breeze.

I also made the cushions myself, which again, was not something I was comfortable with.

Overall a fun project and a comfy place to sit.

Nice execution – I chickened out on the bow arm and opter for the slant arm. They are easy to settle into aren’t they!

Nice. What type of wood and finish did you use?

I used Red Oak, white oak seemed very pricy knowing that I was going to stain it dark. I used Seal a cell and then used an Ebony Stain by General Finishes. Thanks!

I applaud you to no end. I have made many things that were bent wood and glued up to hold the shape. I too have done upholstery and I know when you are not used to doing it it is crazy. I really Love your chair. You have every right to be so proud of it.

That’s a fine looking Morris chair! You have some nice design features on it. The bow arms are a bit of work but came out great—and the upholstery is very well one, especially for your first time!

I used that same pattern. Red oak too. I fall asleep in it every weekend. Yours is very nice.

Are you going to make the footstool?

I still have an mdf forming jig for the glue up. The danged thing weights about 75 pounds and I’ve been saving it these past 7 years thinking I might make another.
