    Looking for Morris chair plans

    I'm thinking of building a Morris chair. Almost every woodworking magazine has a plan available for purchase. I would like to know if anyone here can recommend a certain plan they have used and liked. Thank you.

    You might find what you need in the "Great Morris Chair Project" thread. The material list starts at post #22.

    Walt Caza may be able to direct you to the plans.

    Bob Langís plans that appeared in PW and his many books have worked well for me. Search PW, their back issues are available online.

    I have three sets of plans, none of which I used 'exactly'. But were useful for basic dimensions on seat width, height, depth, back height, etc... which I then tweaked to my liking.

    Read the great morris chair build thread. Lots of ideas there.

    Will post the names of specific plans I have later this eve.

    Thank you for responding to my thread. I have started to read "The Great Morris Chair Project" and I can say it is packed with useful information. I hope to have learned a lot when I am finished reading it.

    I have been very happy with plans from Taunton. In building my chairs I incorporated details from Kevin Rodelís Prairie Settle, plans for this are also available from Taunton. Fine Woodworking has articles and videos associated with both sets of plans.
    Cheers, Bill Fleming
