Onken Morris Chair

Popular Woodworking has a compilation book entitled, "Arts & Crafts Furniture Projects." I've built a couple of pieces from that book but I've been coveting a Morris chair that belongs to my favorite author (Christopher Schwarz) for some time now. This chair was built Oscar Onken and his "Shop of the Crafters," early last century.  Onken's work is a German/Hungarian take on the Craftsman style, which is why I'm so attracted to it.
