As a Windsor Chairmaker, I am endeavoring to create a product as closely
as possible in style and construction methods as Craftsmen of the last half
of the 18th century. An antique representation, that is pleasing to the eye
as well as functional. Blending in with yesterday or today's life styles.
Seats are hand planed and carved from 2" native pine, using a draw knife,
spoke shave and inshave to deeply scoop and finish the seat in the traditional
manner and comfort of the Original Windsor. Stretchers and legs are turned
from hard maple with only the Craftsman's eye to guide him, resulting in
slight differences, not noticeable to the eye in the finished chair, which
is individually assembled and finished by hand. The steam bending of bows
is done with carefully selected woods of hickory and ash. Because of the
handcrafted methods and attention to detail, only a limited amount of chairs
are produced annually.
