I am interested in learning how to build a Windsor Chair but don’t have the time to attend a class at the Windsor Institute in New Hampshire. Are there any step by step plans and templates available for windsors similiar to Hal Taylors plan’s for Maloof rockers?

Thanks

I made a set of windsor chairs by following the instructions of this book

http://www.amazon.com/Chairmakers-Workshop-Handcrafting-Post---Rung/dp/1579902308/ref=sr_1_3?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1287540415&sr=1-3

There is a second edition out from the author so you need to google his name to buy it from his website.

Just picked up Make a Windsor Chair With Michael Dunbar on ebay for $30. Looking forward to see what I can learn from this book.

Lowest price that I could find on Amazon for Make a Windsor Chair With Michael Dunbar was close to $100

Have your say...
