07-22-2014 03:05 PM by WoodAndShop | 0 comments »

In my above video I share my recent tour of Elia Bizzari’s traditional Windsor chair workshop in Hillsboro, North Carolina. I found Elia to not only be warm & welcoming, but incredibly hilarious. We had some great laughs together in his workshop and will be working on filming a DVD together in the near future. Please contact me if a Windsor chair tutorial DVD interests you. Elia started traditional woodworking as a teenager, and eventually discovered his passion for making trad...
