Three Windsor Style Rocking Chairs: a sack back rocker, a fan back rocker and a comb back rocker. Chairs were made in the style of Mike Dunbar. I’ve attended all his workshops except his Settee workshop in Hampton, New Hampshire. It’s been 20 years and I would love to go back and attend all of them one more time.

Great looking chairs. I’m an admirer of Windsor chairs and these look great!
