Over the years people have often asked that I take on commissions for indoor furniture. I have always refused for a variety of reasons but the latest person to ask has been pushy and would not take "no" for an answer - my husband. The furniture in our home has not been upgraded over the years because our 4 children were young and we figured that new stuff would end up getting abused. With our youngest about to turn 11 my husband has been asking for new living room and dining room sets - I have decided to give in.
The living room set will be an easy one. Both my husband and I love Morris furniture. I have all of the patterns and jigs for this for one of my outdoor offerings. For indoor furniture I will be using pine finished with a spar varnish. I have a bunch of pine left over from a farm house project we did, and lots of spar varnish on hand also. I have made a Morris chair in pine a few years ago, I like the weight and with a conditioner it turned out beautiful. Here is a picture of it:
In any event the project starts tomorrow and I will post pictures as I work my way through it.
