  • cherry morris chair

    Since moving to Our new home 6 years ago I've been sitting in a generic office chair,with another as a leg rest.I always heard that the "morris chair" was the most comfortable for reading and sleeping.Searching the Net for a design I liked was tedious and uninspiring to say the least.Until I added "cherry wood to My search!Thats when I found this chair,made by a craftsman called Brian Brace from NC.
    This is a pic of His design.

    I loved it but felt it was a little to square so I drew My own design and here it is.It is all solid cherry except the arms.I have steam at My job but that did not work to My satisfaction so I was forced to laminate the arms with 3 pieces of stock.
    My biggest disappointment was near the end as I loosley assembled the chair on the basement floor to take measurements for the cushions,My eyes crossed,I had made 2 right arms.DANG!
    Get back to work Dude and get it left this time!
    I bought a american bison hide for the cushions tobacco brown,I belive.I should have enough leather for the ottoman as well .I am just getting started on that now.Gonna be a little tough to match the chair style but whatever I come-up with,will be the best I can do.
