Project Information

Made this from Gregory Paolini's plans via fine woodworking.com. This was by far the most challenging project I've ever done. I always believe in tackling a project that seems beyond my abilities to force myself to learn more. I had to many things I've never done before: Through tenons, wood bending, cutting mortises with a router. It took forever, but I'm very pleased with the results. The picture doesn't really do justice to the beauty of the QS oak.

That's a great looking piece! Where'd you get the cushions or did you make them?

I had the cushions made by a local upholsterer. He did a great job.

I have always been fond of Morris chairs. I especially like the colors you chose for the finish and the leather upholstery. Nice work all around.

Nice chair!

However, you need to train that little rut rat so he doesn't sit in your chair.
