Morris Chairs and foot stools

Hello all!
I just finished a project of two white oak Morris chairs and two foot stools. I used red mahogany stain for the finish.

The table is one of two I made a year or so ago from red oak. Made them before I had a mortising machine!

I’m an old woodworking machines hobbyist so I got to use my 70’s Rockwell setup for dimensioning, a mortiser, and then used hand planes and chisels for fitting and finish. Made my own pegs with a dowel plate.

Peschous upholstery here in Lincoln NE did the cushions and upholstery.

Going to see if my wife will be able to find a nice lamp for the table. Just joined the site, so sorry I don’t have any lead up to this or more in progress info or pix!
