Red Oak, Pine, Maple
Pitch Black Milk Paint
I had the opportunity to attend Mike Dunbar’s Windsor Institute for a Sackback workshop. It was fun to spend a week in the shop with other enthusiastic and like minded woodworkers.
The chairs are traditionally made with hand tools like a drawknife, spokeshave and adz and three different types of wood. The bow and arm are steam bent Red Oak. Spindles are hand shaved from Red Oak blanks. White Pine for the seat and hard Maple for the turnings. The chair is finished with two coats of Pitch Black Milk paint.
