This simple high chair is designed for slightly older children who long to sit at table with adults and graduate from an independent high chair with built-in table. This simple and rugged design has been proven over many years and children often like to continue to use their chairs long after they have grown out of them!
This 2-seat settee was inspired by two historical settees, one from England and the other America. The deeply sculpted seat and reclined back make it comfortable for extended periods. The crinoline stretcher and curved arm posts give it an elegance missing from many 2-seaters. It will be at home in both traditional and contemporary settings.
This style of chair was popular in the late 1700’s. The original chairs all had drawers for candles and writing equipment and this modern interpretation does the same. The writing arm can be placed on either side. Modern uses of this chair include: crosswords, iPads, remote controls……………………!
No previous experience is necessary to successfully complete a Windsor chair making course and yet experienced woodworkers will still be fully challenged. Individual guidance and assistance will be provided as appropriate, and every effort will be made to ensure a rewarding and enjoyable course.
Written by James Mursell, this book was the first new book about the making and design of Windsor chairs for over 10 years. It was written with a broad readership in mind and is aimed at existing Windsor chair makers and also at those who are contemplating making their first chair.
Ben Orford makes the blades for my travishers.
Watch his short video about this great tool and the uses it can be put to.
“This tool is phenomenal. I bought two, one for myself and another for my Windsor chairmaker instructor. Compared to the other travishers I have used, yours is very good to work with and everyone who has tried it loves it. I just ordered a second one and your two spokeshaves which I trust will be as enjoyable to use. Thanks again for making such great tools.” LG (USA) 2015
