    Have you ever thought about the making your own Windsor chair? I offer a 5 day, one-on-one course in my workshop located in the beautiful Eastern Townships of Quebec. I am a chair maker Instructor listed by Windsor Chair Resources and Canadian Woodworking & Home Improvement. The one-on-one course includes all materials, the use of all hand tools required to build a Windsor chair as well as a detailed instruction manual on how to make a Windsor chair. At the end of the week, the aspiring chair maker leaves with their own, hand made chair! I demonstrate the techniques used in every step at the same time, including how to properly keep your tools razor sharp. The course is offered once a month year round on a first come first serve basis. Just let me know your preferred dates and I'll do my best to fit you in.
  2. I was perusing websites for Green Woodworking tonight, and through links and resources I came across this wonderful short film about chair-maker Lawrence Neal. I have been becoming familiar with the woodworker's of the U.K and Europe over the last year or so, through research and contacts and a couple hand tool purchases shipped to me from "over there". The woodworking skill and art in that part of the world is wonderful, the Green Woodworking culture has taken off like a firestorm over there in the last decade among the youth and middle aged, and of course bodgering in the U.K is where it all started. The craft has come back in a big way, and it's really nice to see folks just working the wood, simply, and with just a few tools. Although chair-maker Lawrence Neal has more than just a "few tools, he does have quite the simple shop. So, hope you like this lil film, it's relaxing, and interesting I feel.

    Walnut Rocker Seat

    From the album: Walnut Rocking Chair

    Before the finish is applied the chair is sanded to 800 then buffed to 1200 Abralon. The chair is already shining before the first finish goes on.

    This is the first time I have played with actually photographing my work in a more professional way, with the help of my kids, I think we did pretty good. This chair was another fun build, I just love these chairs.

  9. I have been busy designing and building a side chair to go with our new kitchen table. The plan was to build one prototype out of poplar, and a 2nd chair out of poplar. Both of these chairs will be either painted black or sprayed with black lacquer. Then, the plan is to build four chairs from cherry and maple. The prototype chair was completed this week. The 2nd poplar chair is moving along and the material for the cherry chairs has been purchased, acclimated to my shop environment, cut, jointed, and planned to rough dimensions. The seat blanks for the cherry chairs have a few additional steps complete. My wife wanted (6) new chairs (side chairs) for our kitchen. Designing/making chairs is a challenging task. The design needs to look pleasing to the eye, structural, and functional. There are a few chair “builds” on the internet, but they did not meet my needs. Many of the side chair designs today either have a cushion seat or have Maloof joinery. When a chair has a cushion, the seat does not have a cant, allowing the design/construction to be simplified (eliminates six compound joints). A chair with the Maloof joinery does incorporate a wooden seat, but I did not want to mimic someone else’s design. This chair design will attempt to pull design features from the kitchen cabinets, kitchen table, and from the bar stools. My wife would like the chairs to have a short back (36”), a wooden seat, and have a short seat depth, so that she will be able to sit in it comfortably. The chair construction will utilize mortise & tenon joinery, mortise & loose tenon joinery, and dowel joinery. While searching for information, I found a book written by Jeff Miller, (from Chicago). Jeff is a known chair craftsman/designer/builder. His book gives much insight into the “what, why, and how” different things are done and the jigs he uses for the needed joints. This book is a good read. I also reviewed Mike Dunbar’s (from New Hampshire) work. He is known for his Windsor chair. I did not what to mimic a Windsor chair. I was able to purchase the plan for a dining chair designed by Kevin Rodel. Mr. Rodel’s chair was published in a Fine Woodworking 2007 magazine and has a cushion seat. This plan did give me insight into his chair’s construction. I started the design/prototype build process by making hand sketches on paper, and then latter I made sketches using SketchUp. I determined the chairs overall dimension, including the seat cant, back support cant, and the chair’s line-of-sight. Then I started to sketch the seat blank. There were many sketch iterations using SketchUp. I wanted the seat to completely cover the chair front and side rails and I wanted stretchers between the front and rear legs to help make for a more robust design. This chair seat will not swivel (like the bar stools), so the tilt will have to be built into the structure. The tilt allows for a more comfortable sit. There is a need to have the seat and structure taper from the front to the back to allow the line-of-sight to be pleasing to the eye. Poplar wood was selected for the prototype material. After making detail sketches, I made a parts list and a plan for execution. The plan included a design selection for each joint and documenting what was need for templates and jigs. The side chair design/build utilized more than 16 different “shop made” tools. I can provide more information and pics as time allows. Thank you for looking. Danl
  10. A handmade Windsor chair is the most comfortable wooden dining, kitchen or casual chair there is. At Windsor Heritage, I make both traditional and contemporary Windsor chairs by hand using 18th century tools and craftsmanship. I modify the the dimensions, the style of the turnings and the design to meet the needs of my clients. My Windsor chairs can be found in homes in Canada, the United States and England. I also give chair making classes in my workshop located in Stanbridge East, one of the most beautiful villages in Quebec, Canada.
  11. planned winter projects include building some Adirondack chairs for the back paito. Have the plans and hardware in hand, but no lumber yet. Suggestions on lumber to use?

    A couple years ago I purchased a full set of Veritas Spoke Shaves and chair scrapers, I have not had a complete chance to use them all, but I just played with this concave shave on my most recent chair, obviously the diameter of the shave does not fit the diameter of the post, as these shaves are kind of sized for Windsors more or less. But working with it the little that I did, it's a beauty. It's a joy to handle, and the adjustment screws are nice to have the twin screws, I can really dial in the shave.
  14. I received a message from a friend asking for advise on how to repair this broken child chair. It appears from the pic that the chair stretchers do not have tenons. Looking for suggestions to make the joint stronger than just doing the obvious of gluing the broken piece back on. In the 2nd pic the broken leg is being held in place. Thanks Danl

    A Maloof Chair in progress, this chair is being made by Mike Johnson, the first paid employee of Maloof from his early years. Maloof entrusted Mike with the daily operations of the shop, and he passed on the legacy to Mike upon Sam's death. I got to sit and watch Mike shape the headrest for this chair with rasp. It was fun. We came back an hour later and he had closed up shop around 3:30pm.
