Chair finished. Saw it in Popular Woodworking. Also, found the chair in a Gustav Stickley catalog. This was a challenging project. Didn’t have a great time getting upholstery done but other than that it was great.

Please see my multi piece blog about making the chair!

P.S. – Think Laurie really likes it…

Very nice chair. The Morris chair is one of my favorites, only piece of furniture I have built. You did a beautiful job.

Your chair is absolutely magnificent, Really nice job.
I read the blog also, great.
Hay I wonder if you would mind telling me what brand those sliding squares that your using are?
I have difficulty getting a sliding square that is accurate.

Congrats on a nice Morris chair. That smile says you did a good job. All made more difficult using mostly Caveman tools. Loved the blog.

Thanks for posting..

That’s a nice one for sure. This project is a rite of passage for woodworkers. Anyone into arts and crafts style furniture should build one of these. I have one just like it in my living room. It was the project that got me interested in leather upholstery work too.

Great work.

I second your sentiment regarding the upholstery. That is usually the downside we would all have to face after doing the fun woodworking part. Great job by the way!

A testament to a time honored design. Well done! Looks like another happy customer too. LOL
