Wicked Smaht Woodworking’s

Adjustable Back Arm Chair

Videos • Patterns • Procedures • Plans

Commonly known as a Morris chair, this project is on the bucket list of almost every woodworker! The square posts, front and back, and angled side rails create the trapezoid-shaped base. With huge sweeping arms, through mortise-wedged tenons, and a curved adjustable back, this build will show off your patience and craftsmanship. Our video production, booklet, plans, and patterns are designed to give you the knowledge and confidence to build this classic chair and do it well.
