Believed to have originated with William Morris, father of the English Arts and Crafts movement, the so-called Morris chair combines comfort with simply stated good looks. True to form, our version features loose cushions, curved arms, and an adjustable back. We'll even tell how to make the cushions.

Measures 34-1/4" wide, 29-1/2" deep, 42-1/4" tall

The Morris Chair

This is a very worthwhile project, and put the building of a beautiful piece of furniture into the hands of someone who probably won't have tried otherwise.

I used white Oak (post Oak) A tree I cut down in 2008 to extend my house. The tree was planted just one day before Pearl Harbor.

The plans worked really well and I'm looking forward to having the cushions made.

The Arms do need special attention, and I found this the most difficult part of construction, though just follow the plans and you're be fine.

I used a Harbor freight Mortice machine which was a fantastic deal, though I didn't extend the tenons out.

I finished the chair with lime wax then over coated with General finishes Arm R Seal Satin Top Coat to seal it.

Great Plans, can't wait to build something else!
