I am currently listed in Early American Life’s 2010 Directory of Traditional American Crafts for my hand-made Windsor chairs.

The continuous arm Windsor chair was one of the only Windsors developed outside of Philadelphia (ca. 1789) and became for New York what the sack back had been for Philadelphia. These popular and comfortable chairs featured a shield seat, as opposed to the Philadelphia's oval seat.

Each chair begins with locally grown green lumber. Every seat is hand-carved from Eastern White Pine. I do all of our turnings by hand on a lathe, out of maple or black birch. Every spindle is rived (split) from the log 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 milk paint (your choice of color).

Each piece is custom made-to-order, please allow 6-8 weeks. The price is for local pick up only. I can help you arrange shipping, I offer standard crating and white glove delivery (pricing will vary).
