  1. I have posted a couple videos from this craftsman in the past, Curtis Buchanan is a chair maker, his specialty is the Windsor in all shapes and forms, he creates his chairs starting from the purchase of his logs, and he'll fell his own from time to time as well. And he's just a neat soul as well. This video is long (20 minutes), I wouldn't expect anyone really to sit through a video this long, because these videos are like sharing music with others, they are personal, we all relate to music in our own way and the reaction you may expect from others regarding your musical tastes can be either disappointing or the music you shared may bring you together. But I feel there is something in this video for everyone. I like this video because he touches on something, most of us woodworkers have either dealt with already in trying to start up a business, or you may be currently pursuing a livelihood in the craft. Either way, I think many of you will be able to relate to Curtis' challenges and success's in starting his own woodworking business in his own shop, in his own backyard. This video is not so much about the chairs he makes, but the process he went through to become a successful and well respected artisan in his craft. He started with nothing, and he built it up to a livelihood. Segment from the 2012 series Soul's Journey: Inside The Creative Process featuring 22 artists and craftspeople in the South.
  2. A great blog by one of my online mentors, Elia Bizzarri (ENJOY!) The following are my thoughts on drill bits for Windsor chairmaking. Bear in mind that I have used some of these bits (augers, bradpoints, etc.) daily for 15 years and other bits I have used infrequently. In these reviews, I am comparing well tuned examples of each bit. Poorly tuned bits will make an awful mess regardless of type. Spoon bits: The traditional bit of the Windsor chairmaker. Advantages – cuts clean holes even at extreme angles, thickness of shaving changes relative to hardness of wood being cut, is fun to use, operator can easily change angles at anytime. Disadvantages: Hard to sharpen. The diameter of the bit changes with many sharpenings. The shortness of the bit makes it harder to sight accurately (this can be overcome with an extension). It requires skill to start the hole in the right place or a gouge to hollow a spot for starting the bit. New bits either don’t work or require considerable tune up. Old bits can be hard to find.

  3. Greg Pennington builds beautiful Windsors and conducts classes as well.
  4. Just found this. It's a good read. Be sure to click on the great article in the Cincinnati Magazine. Enjoy. https://www.popularwoodworking.com/woodworking-blogs/chris-schwarz-blog/great-free-read-chairmaker-chester-cornett
  5. One of my favorite websites is http://www.windsorchairresources.com/ And on the home page is a list of makers, and one of the makers is Luke Barnett. I was perusing Mr. Barnett's pages and found this Windsor he created, all his chairs are drop dead gorgeous, but this one made my heart skip a beat. Literally, I was surfing and flicking through the pages, and I saw the color, the seat, the photography, just all around waaaay neat, and my heart skipped. Just thought I'd share a little of Luke's work. A Windsor rocker an chair is definitely on my 2018 list of things to do.
  6. Welcome to the website for Luke A Barnett Chairmaker. I make American Windsor chairs, rocking chairs, dining chairs, arm chairs, side chairs, accent chairs, and even some Windsor style stools. Made in Adrian, Michigan USA. My chairs are designed to be around for the next few hundred years. I would be honored to have some of my chairs become part of your family legacy. Read more...
  7. For me, making a Windsor chair is part of an historical journey. My ancestors emigrated from Europe to Philadelphia in 1754. Interestingly the founding and growth of our nation and the development of the American Windsor chair encompass the same century, spanning the period from 1750 to 1850. Philadelphia was the center of the Windsor universe just as it was the center of the American experiment in Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. Read more...

  9. Every now and then something really cool gets posted to our Facebook page by a friend or a member. @Reid Smith posted this wonderful video on our page. And after I watched this all get out cool video I researched more on this gentleman by the name of Chris, and his YouTube channel is really good, full of information both educational and full of ideas in woodworking. Chris specializes in human power woodworking. And he has a very creative flair. Many of you may remember Chris as the fellow who built that anniversary gift for his wife, the long trestle table, it was a viral video that gained international attention. Well this is the same Chris. Below is another video I absolutely love watching, and here is the link to Chris's YouTube channel at Chops with Chris. Check it out, you'll find yourself sitting and watching many of his videos, they are that interesting. This is one cool video! Watch for the quick time portion near the beginning, it speeds up.
  10. A wonderful website with notable chair makers and the resources they put together for folks interested in Windsor Chairs and the making.
  11. Just a great site by a chair maker, who also makes his own tools, very cool.
  12. Just came across a wonderful image I found at the Facebook Page for Colonial Williamsburg. I have been following these folks for good amount of time now and I love the images coming out of their location. This gentleman is working on the construction of a Chippendale side chair.

  13. One of my favorite chair makers Curtis Buchanan shows us how to turn a bead with a skew chisel. Nice video.
  14. Maybe it will give my back a rest? When not in use, I can slide it under the bench. A wee bit taller than the Tool Chest #1, and a bit more PADDED for my rearend. Seemed to work.
  15. Was just browsing around this afternoon (can't put a full day in the shop yet) and stumbled upon this neat trick. I am always coming up with wobbly stools, chairs, tables, etc - anything with legs - regardless of how many times I trim them down. This trick solves the problem
