Description

In this chairmaking seminar participants learn how to handcraft a Windsor chair typical of those made in Philadelphia and New York in the late 1700's. The project is a bow-back side chair. It is our opinion that starting with a more difficult pattern, such as a sack-back or continuous-arm Windsor, is a mistake for an introductory course. The bow-back has been selected so that you will have an opportunity to learn and practice the many challenging techniques of Windsor chairmaking. Once you have some skill in the various Windsor chair techniques and have an understanding of how to deal with the many different angles found in these chairs it becomes realistic to make a Windsor in any other style, or to design your own version.
