Hello, my first time at Gatherings. I can sew a straight line, that’s about it. Here’s the problem. I have an old Morris Chair without seating – it probably had one of those drop in framed unpholstered seats and backs. They are long gone. Where can I find plans or a pattern for making a seat and back?Would it be too difficult for a someone who has never been able to get beyond the novice level? My husband is an accomplished woodworker – so I think he could make any framing that was necessary. Thanks for any suggestions you can give me.
Try woodworking magazines, either in their archives or in the adverstising section, which has plans for those type chairs. I've seen them before in the ads, but I don't remember which magazine.
I don't know where you live, but I was in Lee Valley (a somewhat upscale tools and woodworking/gardening supplier) in Toronto this morning and spied a set of wood working plans for a Morris Chair - I think they were published by "American Furniture". Lee Valley has website, http://www.leevalley.com/home/main.asp and I bet if you contacted them (either by Email or on the phone) they could tell you more about this set of plans. Since the upoulstery is part of the finished version, I would think plans would also be there for the seat cusshions and back...
