Continuous Arm Windsor Rocker with Elia Bizzarri

Continuous Arm Windsor Rocker with Elia Bizzarri


It's the quintessential continuous arm Windsor arm chair and now it rocks! First made in New York City in the late 18th century, the continuous arm's one-piece back with its compound bend isan American design innovation. You'll build your Windsor rocker entirely with hand tools as you learn the skills and joinery techniques by which well-constructedchairs are made. Split a log, shape the back and spindles with drawknives and spokeshaves, steam bend the back, hollow the seat using inshaves and travishers, and assemble the chair using hand drills. Open to all levels of students who enjoy plenty of long hours and hard work. Due to the time available the instructor will prepare the turnings ahead of time. Materials $150.

    Note: This is billed as a six day class, but we have added on a seventh day (no charge) to reduce the number of late nights and missed suppers!
