Continuous-arm Windsor

The continuous arm Windsor chair was one of the only Windsors developed outside of Philadelphia (circa 1789) and became for New York what the sack back had been for Philadelphia. These popular and comfortable chairs featured a shield seat, as opposed to the Philadelphia's oval seat. The chair is available with your choice of paddle, violin, or knuckle arms and with or without a tail brace. Shown here with a tail brace and violin arms.

Price, as shown: $1000

Description

The continuous arm Windsor chair was one of the only Windsors developed outside of Philadelphia (circa. 1789) and became for New York what the sack back had been for Philadelphia. These popular and comfortable chairs featured a shield seat, as opposed to the Philadelphia's oval seat. The chair is available with your choice of paddle, violin, or knuckle arms and with or without a tail brace. A guitar picking option is also available if you would like only the left or right arm (see images for examples).

As with all of our Windsors, each chair 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.
