BLACK WALNUT MORGAN CHAIR
The client had 3 dining chairs that originated from the estate of JP Morgan and asked me to make 3 replicas so they could have a complete set of 6. The chairs were made in the late 1800's and featured carved mahogany burl crest rails and back splats. I made the replicas from black walnut, a structurally superior wood, and used reddish brown wood dye to match the original chair's coloring. The chairs were finished with linseed oil and seven coats of garnet shellac.
