Building a Windsor Chair : A Comprehensive demo by David Douyard

Dave Douyard Sack Back 800Building a Windsor chair can be daunting to those new to the craft, but with a bit of exposure, inspiration can replace hesitation and get you on your way to building comfortable, durable and beautiful chairs.
This two day seminar will focus on many of the varied skills that go into producing a classic Windsor chair. From splitting the log, shaving the parts, steambending, turning, joinery, carving and finishing, you’ll watch as well-known Connecticut chair builder David Douyard constructs a classic Sack-back Windsor chair. David will explain the process as he goes and answer the many questions that always come up. Come with an open mind, a notebook and a camera to catch all the action. We are scheduling a weeklong Windsor class summer 2020 where each participant will make their own Sackback Windsor chair. This demo weekend is a great introduction to that weeklong class. Either way– Don’t miss it! Sign up today! Tuition $275.00– Materials are included
