Let’s just say that some projects are more involved than others. The Morris Chair not only has a high degree of difficulty, but to put it simply: there’s a lot of things to do! As a result, the video documentation of the process is lengthy and involved. I don’t think I’ve had this much content to film since the Roubo build. So bear with me in the coming weeks as I flip the switch on the content machine gun with multiple video releases per week. This is the first time we’ll be abandoning our traditional “Video Friday” release schedule but at least it’s due to too much video as opposed to not enough.

Ultimately, I’d like a little time to breathe between the Morris Chair and the Krenov Cabinet which begins in September so you’ll have to excuse me as I gently apply my nose to the grindstone. Thanks everyone!

Is it feasible to scale down the thickness of the wood tgat goes into making the Morris chair? I’ve got some decent European oak but after putting it through the thicknesser it’s about 23mm. I can glue 3 pieces (4 If needed) to make the legs.

    You certainly can but you’ll need to be consistent about it. And there are lower limits to where the pieces are no longer sturdy enough if you go too thin. So yes, but it depends on just how much and which parts you scale down.

I have always enjoyed woodworking and over the past couple years have gone from wrapping up projects around the house to starting to get back into woodworking and building furniture for our home and friends. I expand the garage to allow me to have a dedicated 14×22 foot wood shop with the other two bays (where my wife parks her car) as a place to set up my larger equipment and use the new bay for a build table which I built with your help building me a 40X60 torsion box that I drilled with 20mm holes every 96 mm , I also have a Festool MFT-3 w/ attached router table.

Anyway, I started watching your videos and recently joined the guild. You do a good job and have a nice approach to teaching. Thanks for your hard work and I have enjoyed following along with the Morris chair. I will be joining along on your next project. My wife will enjoy the Krenov Cabinet.

Great job.

Hi Marc,
Everyone needs to stop & smell the roses (are there roses in AZ?) once in a while. 🙂

Enjoy the break & thanks again for the fantastic videos, notes, tips & tricks.
