Awesome job!

The last chair that I built was a braced back Continuous Arm with Mike Dunbar. I can’t wait to return to New Hampshire in April to build my next chair, a Bowback. Hope you had a great time with the build.

Nice chair, I think that continuous arm chair is my favorite of the windsor styles.

Beautiful. I make shaker, windsor & rustic type chairs. Taught myself years ago. This chair has it all..light as air looking. crisp turnings, and of course the continuous arm. I have made one continuous arm and I will never make another..I must have bent 10 backs to get the one I used and I’m not really satisfied with it. Great job

Thanks for all of your kind words. While this chair is challenging, it is forgiving and if I can do it, any of you could do it. Curtis is amazing to work with. He was doing several public courses in the last couple of years but says he will be staying in Tennessee from now on.
He does almost all with hand tools except lathe and band saw. All the spindles are rived, shaved, and spokeshaved. He is meticulous which is what sets his chairs apart.

In my opinion his classes along with those of Pete Galbert are much better than Dunbar’s though I have not been there. This is actually my first of 5 chairs so far, with 3 still in stages of finishing. I will be posting the rest as they are ready.
