Armchairs can be used at the head of a table or individually to relax in.
They are remarkably comfortable due to the extensive shaping of the seat and the way that the back of the chair supports the body.

Double-bow – smaller
This classic traditional chair dates from around 1770. In spite of the lightness of construction it is a tough chair that will withstand many years of hard use. The back of the chair wraps around the sitter and supports the body very comfortably. Ideally paired with the bow-back chair.
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
