The chair plan which is presented in response to a high number of requests for an authentic Morris chair reproduction which can be made in home workshops. The chair has wide, bandsawn bow arms and the back adjusts to 3 positions. Morris chairs first became popular in the early 1900's as part of the Stickley / Arts & Crafts movement. Now you can use our plan to build this classic piece. Overall size: 33" wide x 38-1/2" high x 33-5/8" deep.
The footrest plan matches the chair perfectly, of course. Build both projects and relax in comfort while you take stock in your woodworking skills. Arts & Crafts projects are relatively easy to make and will accent any similarly styled chair. Top area is 15" by 19", height is 15-1/4". The cushion shown is a slip seat with a box edge. There is no instruction for upholstering of either project, so that will be up to you, but the plans take care of every detail of the wood frames. All joinery is shown in full size for each project.
This is a blueprint style plan which is heralded by beginners and experts alike as being a pleasure to work from because all parts are printed in full size -- all joinery is shown in actual size, curved workpieces are all in full size, therefore you can measure and trace straight from the drawing if necessary. A bill of materials doubles as an exact cutting list, there is a detailed exploded diagram, and all hardware requirements are provided. The exploded diagram so detailed that project specific assembly instructions are not provided. A special booklet entitled Guide to Building Wood Furniture is included with each Furniture Designs, Inc. plan and includes many tips explaining the "component theory" of woodworking.
