I use all British timbers – Elm for the seat – Ash for the upper frame, bows, back and arm spindles, also under frame legs and stretchers, if requested I use     Yew for the upper frame making a higher quality chair. All timbers I use come from sustainable resources. I use a Bobbin-Bow Lathe to turn legs, short arm spindles and stretchers using the wood green giving a finish that does not need sanding.

Once an order has been placed, I custom make each Windsor chair to fit a person’s ergonomic stature.

All curved and bent parts of the chairs are steamed for approximately one hour, then gently pulled round a former to get the desired shape. I use traditional sharp, chair making tools to fine shape and finish my chairs to give the unique and individual appeal.
