Description

The basic Low-back Windsor chair features a heavy arm rail to maintain structural strength, as the weight of the sitter is concentrated in the low back. These unique mid-eighteenth style  Windsors were made in Philadelphia. The ogee-curved arm pieces bring together the ends of the heavy back rail using lap joints secured with wooden pins. They feature a D shaped seat with hand carved gutter.

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.

sizing varies slightly by piece


Price:   starting at $1200.00
