That’s a fabulous accomplishment—and you’ve only been woodworking for two years! We can’t wait to see what you’ll be making 5 years from now!

Thank you! It was one of those projects that my woodworking “guys” said, “don’t even attempt that project! It is way too advanced, and you will get discouraged!!!!!” That was all they had to say for me to prove them wrong!!!!

Well it looks like it is a wonderful accomplishment and looks very nice. Congratulations, Snookie. BTW, our plant is right up the road from you in White, Georgia.

Very nice chair, I really like the color, what did you make it from? It looks like cherry.

The loop & the spindles are made of oak, and the carved seat, legs, & stretchers are made of poplar. I painted it with a Red Barn Milk paint! It took me two weeks working for 10 hours a day under the supervision of Keith Herndon of Cove Creek Woodworking! Everything was done by me, but under his eyes! I really enjoyed learning how to use the drawhorse & drawing knives, then the lathe for the legs & stretchers. Carving the seat was fun too! The angles for drilling the holes was very tricky, and everything had to be dry fitted before applying the hide glue! It taught me to take my time & have patience! :-)

nice little chair. As a person who has made windsor /shaker chairs for many many yrs, I have never heard of the term Loopback. It’s a new one on me. Is it regional? I have never seen that refined a seat on a chair with that back. (I don’t get out much :-0 )
I’m glad you are enjoying the process..chairs are devils, but can be great fun too. Good luck with your journey.

“Loopback” is probably a regional thing or could be just a “Jasper, GA” thing! :-) I wanted the seat to the chair to be really comfortable, so as I was “carving” it, I kept sitting in it and carving over & over again until I was so comfortable I didn’t want to get up! :-)

Michelle – I love your work! :-)

I, for the second time, visited you, in my dream, and had longer view on all your projects, in my awareness. They are all very nice. I came back to your Windsor Loopback Chair to leave my comment, because I liked it most of all other. I said to myelf ” Wow !! and it’s made by a woman”.....realy realy very nice.
Congratulation, Snoopkie.
