I made this chair as part of the same class as my pal, Fred Dudak, at the Windsor Institute with Michael Dunbar.

Fred’s chair was more refined than mine when I left—he’s got more of the chairmaker knack. But I did a little work on my knuckles and redeemed myself a little!

Delicate things—especially until all the parts are assembled.

Looks to me like you have nothing to apologize for.

Nice Job!

Way to go. That’s a great looking chair and I’m sure you had a great time on “vacation”.

Hey Chuck,

The chair looks great! Glad to see you got it all assembled without a hitch. Now start working on some more Sack Backs to fill up that beautifull table. Have you decided on what color for the chair yet?

Hi Fred,

I’m gonna paint it red, and then paint black over it.

I’m really thinking about building different chairs for each spot on the table. Kind of my own little antique reproduction furniture museum. I thought about adding a Queen Anne, maybe a Chippendale with carved ball and claw feet, along with a couple of different Windsors. Throw in a Shaker Chair, and an Arts and Crafts chair.

I should have all eight done by 2012. Maybe!

Best,

Chuck
