Plan Format Options

Two Plan Formats are Available:

  2. Full-size drawings downloaded (Pdf format) for printing on an A0/ANSI E printer

1. Scale Drawings

  • Scale drawings in Pdf format for printing at A4/letter size
  • Clear scales are given for each drawing on squared paper so that full size templates  for the seat and bending formers can be easily created.
  • See tips for creating full size templates

2. Full-Size Plans Downloaded

  • Full size Windsor chair plans allow you to get to work straight away by cutting out the shapes and tracing around them onto the wood.
  • Outlets that can print Pdf format files on A0/ANSI E paper can be found locally nowadays. These are frequently used for producing architectural plans and similar.
  • Download the Pdf format file and email it to the printer. Collect the print and you are ready to start.
  • See tips for creating full size templates


The cost of plans varies from chair to chair depending on the complexity and size of the design.

The cost of downloads for each chair is the same for each option (scale drawings or full-size).

Chair Making Courses

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.

Chair Making Book

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.

Tool Testimonials

“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
