New Windsor Chair

Here’s a new Windsor Chair that I have just completed. Whereas my previous Windsors had plank seats, this time I hand carved a saddled seat. The white oak for this chair grew on my farm and was turned green, dried, then the tenons were re-turned. The crest rail was steam bent. The seat is made from a board that was kiln dried, purchased from the Hardwood Store in Gibsonville, N.C. All of the joinery is through wedged mortise and tenon with tapered tenons used to join the legs to the seat. Wedges are Walnut
