  1. Oak Morris Chair

    I made this oak Morris Chair that I had wanted for years and finally found the time to do, I was not able to get quarter sawn white oak because it has just become prohibitively expensive so this is made from red oak. I have the pictures of the parts as I made them and I sew as well so I was able...
  2. Morris Chair

    This version of the Morris Chair is based on the New Yankee Workshop plans with some modifications. First, I reduced the size of the slats on the sides to make it similar to the coffee table I built a few months ago. Second, I slightly reduced the dimensions of the legs by 1/4" each side to...

  4. Triple Threat

    Since I don't have a digital camera or a life, I stuffed three projects into one photo: 1) a morris chair and ottoman (and I'll bet you can't tell I did the sewing for the cushion covers), 2) the bookcase, and 3) the clock on the bookcase. The chair and ottoman were made from dimensional...

  7. 2 Mission Quatered Oak Pantries

    These Pantries were made for a customer of mine here in Black Mountain this summer. I designed them to the size that they were looking for and built three of them for there house.

  8. Pine Morris Chair

    I have wanted to build a Morris Chair for a while. Following a bit of a slump in the shop, I decided that I needed to challenge myself. A bazillion mortises seemed like just the thing. I know that Morris Chairs are generally built from quartersawn white oak, but before dropping the $ for that...

    This natural Cherry Prairie Settle in spindles I just finished. It has a hand rubbed oil finish and I have been building these since my apprenticeship in Vermont back in 1995.

  11. Stickley 369 Morris Chair

    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...
  12. Morris Chair

    Here's a Morris chair I made some time ago. I spotted some great looking Morris chairs on LJ's and just had to make one for myself. This one is made from birch and the upholstery is leather with foam inside. Finished with oil. It's pretty simple, but I prefer this design over the more...
  13. Stickley Morris Chair

    Wood: Quartersawn red oak. Finish: Ammonia fumed,BLO,shellac,wax. A couple of firsts: first chair and first time steam bending(back slats). Thanks to help in the forum for a newbie steaming. The chair is slightly wider and taller than the plan(craftsman plans). The wood told me to do it. All...
  14. Papa Bear's Chair

    This was my first chair and one of my first projects. A different take on a Morris chair. I wanted it to be different, and since they tend to be very linear chairs, I chose to add as many slight curves as I could. I started with the vertical slats, which also gave it more of a three...
  15. Reading Chair

    Another Morris chair offshoot. A few apologies: 1) the only pictures I have are the ones I took while the chair was on the bench cookies. 2) I made it for a friend whom said she would make the cushions for it and I don't have any pictures of it with the cushions. I did make a similar chair to...

  17. Reclaimed Pine All-Weather Morris Chair Recliner

    This is my Morris Chair. It is made from pine that I got for free from a friend of a friend's old bookshelf. When I got the wood some of it was badly warped, there were a few screw holes in a bunch of places that I had to plug, and it was discolored from years of use so I pre-sanded everything...

  19. Morris chair restoration

    After completing my bathroom vanity and cabinet, I decided to work on a simple, quick project. Was I ever mistaken! What I thought would be just retying a few springs, replacing a spindle, regluing the carved additions to the chair feet, and reupholstering two cushions turned into a major...
