Continuous Arm Windsor Chair w/ Elia Bizzarri

Continuous Arm Windsor Chair w/ Elia Bizzarri


It's the classic American continuous arm Windsor arm chair! First made in New York City in the late 18th century, the continuous arm's one-piece back with its compound bend is an American design innovation. You'll build your Windsor chair entirely with hand tools as you learn the skills and joinery techniques by which well-constructed chairs 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 fee $190 payable directly to instructor on day of class

    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!
