A chair I made at a class at Marc Adams Woodworking School. David Wright was instructor. I cannot recommend Marc Adams school too highly. There are tremendous. A fantastic learning environment. I have taken several classes there

Awesome job Ron. To turn the photo, (assuming you are using Windows) find it on your computer and click on it once. Don’t open it. Then right click on it and foind the rotate clockwise in the menu and click. Done. Now you can post an upright photo and we will not have to lean left ….

I think I am stuck. I do everything on an I pad. On my Ipad everything looks square and plumb in my photo file

Barb.. It was a huge amount of fun to do. I have always been intrigued by them. They look so delicate, but they have a lot of strength built into them. I hope to make some more soon . Gotta make a steamer and some bending forms. Will work from Drew Langsner’s book. It is awesome. I don’t know if you have seen recent posts. I am setting up a new hand tool oriented shop.

Windsor chairs have always fascinated me, especially the rocking ones, for their beauty and lines. But at the same time, it intimidates me as I am definitely not a furniture maker, just a carver. Maybe someday and I’d like to take a class or two for it first. By the way, Ron, your bio sounded just like mine. I also didn’t re-discover woodworking until after I retired. Now I am having more fun than ever. It gets me up and running in the mornings, rush into my ship (garage) and say, “Good morning, Shop!” even though there’s nobody but me there! Okay, okay, I know I am a little Goofey, but at my age, that’s me . . . don’t like it . . . tough!
