The chair you see is one that I built during my week long Windsor chair class at the Windsor Institute in late July. This is the same class the FIRST PLACE winner Freddy took with this THIRD PLACE Dad Fred. :-) I added a picture of the chair ready for finishing. There is still some work required after the class to get it ready to paint. This has the traditional milk paint finish of Windsor Green. It looks black in the photos but it is a very nice deep green, and finished it with a danish oil overcoat. I am hooked building these chairs, I am already planning my next class. Thanks for looking.

The chair looks great Rick!!! Hope you have continued success and get an opportunity to build many more. I am working on another chair right now and will post when complete. Keep up the good work!

Hey, I get the greater reward if Freddy takes first! ;) It’s a win win situation.
