This sure was a major one for me to tackle, and it definitely had it’s up and down. The beauty of attempting something of this magnitude is definitely the learning experience one gains going through it. Of course, the build plan and instructions were well written on woodcraftmagazine by lohrwoodworking. Even with that much guidances, it still can be a struggle for anyone if it’s their first attempt. So glad I took the plunge and have something that can be appreciated based on its look, feel and comfort. Honestly this was quite a humbling, learning experience.⠀

Congratulations on this fine looking chair, sounds like maybe you had a few firsts making it, congrats on them as well. Nice accomplishment, and certainly a memory that will grow richer as time passes your making it. After a while we forget the stress, and just enjoy the finished project.

Thanks for sharing.

This is my first chair. Few other projects under my belt and you are absolutely correct on the stress and enjoyment part. Definitely not worried as I used to be cutting each pieces to size. Definitely had my fair share of mistakes on this one as well, but it still came out great.

Very nicely done! And thank’s for sharing the project. I have yet to take on chairs myself. Seeing others build there first gives me confidence to do one.

Thank you. It’s time, patience, effort and some hard work put together. Nothing beyond achievable. Watched few YouTube videos as well for motivation and guidance and came out great. Best wishes.

Great build. Morris chairs are a challenge, but have to be one of the most rewarding projects. I’m finishing two Morris rockers now, and there are challenges at every turn.

Nice work. You’ll enjoy it for years.
