Attached are photos of the windsor chair that I made last year in a class last year with Michael Dunbar. The legs are maple, seat is pine and spindle, arm and bow are red oak. He is an excellent teacher and I had a great time.

Great Job Jeff! Like Kenn said “welcome to the chairmaking family.” Warning though… it is addictive.

Great looking chair. Many of Dunbar’s students have become professional chair makers after taking his courses. Do you plan to do that, or is it just a hobby?

Very pretty chair! Great design, very well executed. Like the spindles. I’m sure that there will be lots of chairs to follow.

Have your say...
