    Plans for a club chair

    Has anyone ever seen any plans for a club chair? I would like to build one for my house if I can find a plan. Thanks in advance.

    Can you show us a picture of what you are thinking of? I Googled "club chair" and got a million different styles.

    Two kinds of Club chairs come to mind, something like a Morris chair where one settles into a broad Leather chair with a fine cigar and Gentleman's beverage... And a Tall chair more eligant than a bar stool, where one sits around a tall table. What hve you in mind?

    Im thinking more along the lines of the Morris chair. It seems to be a little bit decadent.

    There are a number of plans available for Morris chairs. Just do a Google search.

    Fine Woodworking, Issue 101, had probably the nicest Morris Chair article I've ever seen. Their chair is truly a traditional version, and is very comfortable to sit in for long hours. I build one about ten years ago, and it still holds the 'place of honor' in my living room. http://www.jcdelaney.com/Morris%20Chair.htm

    If you're a Fine Woodworking Net member, the article is available in PDF format. If not, you can probably still buy either the article or the magazine copy at their website.
