Here are a couple pictures of a morris chair I finished last week. I've wanted to make one for a while. I finally decided to just go ahead and do it or it would never get built.
The wood is red oak. I used wood that I recycled from an old barn. The wood has a lot of "character". I found out however that if you plane it enough it starts to look like new oak. I thought there was too much contrast of the wood, so I used a rather dark stain to try and even out the color. The arms and legs have two coats. All the other parts have one.
I used straight arms because I plan on using this as my tv chair. The flat arms give me plenty of room for a drink and the remote.
I'm waiting for the wife to finish the back cushion. It required sewing, which I have no clue about.
Thanks for looking
