The Rising Sun Chair is one of the most iconic furniture pieces from the American Revolutionary War period. The very seat George Washington sat in as he signed the Constitution. We invite your to follow along our summer blog series as we craft a reproduction of this historic piece.
Construction on the Rising Sun Chair has begun. The first step was to create a series of templates for various aspects of the chair.
We have been busy hand carving the crest rail, back splat, arms, and legs of the Rising Sun Chair. Check out our progress in our latest blog post.
Hand crafting a piece furniture like the Rising Sun Chair is a labor of love. The templating, carving, finishing, assembly, and great attention to detail forges an intimate relationship between the craftsman and the piece. It is always bitter sweet to say good bye to what we have invested so much of ourselves in. But we send it off with pride and with the satisfaction that only comes with crafting such an iconic embodiment of American history with our own two hands.
