This is a maple and ash milk painted continuous arm windsor. Windsors are hard enough (angles, bending etc) but this was truly a bear . I don’t know exactly how many continuous arms I made & broke, but my frustration level hit a new high! I am not 100% pleased with this chair, but have used it for a few years and have grown fond of it.

Looks great. How hard were the turnings to do?

the turnings, not too bad. what is really hard is bending in 2 planes, and scooping out the seat with traditional handtools. And of course the angles for all of the legs and upward spindles. Thanks for your comment

Hey moron: chairs may separate the men from the boys, but for women who make them, they aren’t so hard!
