I would not usually send a newsletter so soon after the last one, but I want to let you know all about a new website www.windsorchairplans.com , selling chair plans, that I have been working on for the past six months! There’s nothing like it on the web and I hope that it will be a useful resource for Windsor chairmakers around the world.
With the advent of the new website my newsletters will in future relate to, and be available from, my three main websites: www.thewindsorworkshop.co.uk, www.travisher.com, and www.windsorchairplans.com (closed)
I will be attending lots of shows over the spring and summer and look forward to meeting as many Windsor chair enthusiasts as possible. Show dates below for your diary!
Just in case the new site causes any confusion, my three main websites are as follows:
Chair making courses, chairs made to order and specialist tools.
Windsor chair plans for downloading and hard copy.
Specialist chair making tools.
Few places left on courses!
Thank you to everyone that booked onto courses over the last month or so, I look forward to seeing you soon. There are just 15 places remaining on my chair making courses in the first half of the year, so if you are considering coming on a course please don’t leave it too long before booking.
The remaining places are as follows on courses beginning: February 10double bow4May 19double bow4June 4/5stool4June 16continuous arm1
