The rustic Windsor chair is from a class taught by Drew Langsner at www.countryworkshops.org this past week. The chair legs are of elm, seat of poplar, arm bow and spindles of red oak and headrest of white oak. From Drew’s website, ” The rustic Windsor made in this course utilizes a large, comfortable seat and a four-piece sculpted arm-bow. The legs are octagonal in cross-section, with a wide foot that tapers into cylindrical tapered tenons fitted to mortises in the solid plank seat. A low-back or high-back version can be made during the course.” This is the second class that I have taken a Drew’s place and it is a wonderful experience. Finished with a couple coats of oil and wax.

I’m jealous of your class. I’ve studied Mr. Langsner & his handtool works, for many years. I’ll enjoy seeing your finished piece

Wonderful watching this take shape. A blog with some written details explaining the build might be more appropriate for this project, just to get a full appreciation of the fine work you are doing here. Thanks for posting!
