Product Overview

A unique study of a magnificent 18th-century armchair that brings to life the 260-year-old story told by the tool marks and other clues left by the maker, this lavish book celebrates and explains the history and heritage of Windsor chairs. Comparing and contrasting the distinct Windsor designs from England and America, tools, techniques, and selection of materials are extensively covered along with the sensitive shaping of the components that lead to a fine chair. Detailed plans and measurements for four chairs (two English, two American) are also provided in addition to guidance and techniques that explain how to design a chair from scratch.
