Windsor Chair Construction
Antique seventeenth and eighteenth century colonial New England furniture is the most highly prized furniture in the world. Windsor chairs were made in great numbers using local woods such as Ash, Oak, Maple, Poplar and Pine.

Our chairs are made in much the same way. The crest rails and bows are steam bent to a pleasing curve. The crest "ears" are hand carved as well as the arm knuckles. The seat is sculpted from a 17" wide plank and the legs, stretchers, posts and spindles are hand turned. The legs penetrate through the seat and are glued and wedged. The arm post and bow back spindles are done in the same fashion and all of the turnings are pegged appropriately.
