The making of a Windsor chair brings back the craftsmanship of Colonial America by building chairs using 250 year old construction techniques. By using these techniques, I can build a chair that is stronger, more flexible and better looking than the factory reproductions made today.  This, in turn, produces one of the most comfortable "all wood" chairs available today.

I love the chairmaking process and wanted to share this with others.  Therefore, along with chairmaking, I developed a chairmaking kit that includes a video.  To minimize the steps and tools involved, I pre-bend the arm and bow, and pre-turn the legs, stretchers and arm posts.  In this way, I now share the fun of chairmaking with others
