I am planning on building a Mission Style recliner with wooden arms and an
upolstered seat. The arms are no problem but does anyone have a source for
the recliner mechanism?
I guess I couold buy a chair and steal the hardware but that would kind of
defeat the purpose.
Try a Google search and you should find a few. I looked quickly and a
couple possibilities showed up.
The hickorysprings sits looked most promising.
Otherwise you might keep your eyes open for a used recliner. I would
imagine that some of the used recliners go pretty cheap.
What's a "Mission Style recliner" ? A Morris ?
There is no mechanism - you make it all from wood. 5 minutes of
turning gives you a couple of removable pegs, and these go into a
series of holes in the side of the arm with the back resting upon
Mission style chairs weren't recliners in the new sense.
Morris chairs had reclining backs but were manually
positioned while standing behind the chair.
But, if you must, become an upholstery shop and try
I have a $5 Salivation Army chair which has a mechanism.
How much ya gonna give me for it? ;)
Life is short. Eat dessert first!

Thanks for your help,
It looks like Hickory will do the job.
I have also looked at Morris chairs, I guess I would call mine a mondernized
Morris with a Mission theme.
I think the shipping on a 5$ Salivation Army chair might be a bit high,
I DON'T POST MUCH IN HERE BUT I READ YOUR ARTICLE ABOUT A MECHANISM FOR
I HAVE AN ELECTRIC PUSH BUTTON ONE THAT WAS ON A CHAIR I HAD BUT THE
CHAIR WAS SHOT SO I TOOK IT A PART BUT SAVED THE MECHANISM
THE MECHANISM IS MADE OF METAL
