Description

Sack-back Windsor benches (settees) are available to seat two, three, or four adults (pricing varies by size). Most of the early Windsor benches (settees) were produced in Philadelphia (ca. 1750-1770) and feature a hand carved, New England style, continuous plank seat.

Each bench, as with all of our Windsors, begins with locally milled green lumber. Every seat is hand-carved from Eastern White Pine. We do all of our turnings by hand on a lathe out of maple or black birch. Every spindle is rived and shaved on a shave horse to ensure the grain is left unbroken from end to end. This traditional process is repeated on the chair's back before steaming and bending. The legs are set using a traditional tapered lock joint which increases the chair's stability. Finally everything is wedged, hand sanded and finished with your choice of colored lacquer or milk paint. Every piece is custom made to order allowing us to tailor each commission to your specific needs.
