Well, you make this look doable by an inexperienced individual like me, so I think I’m going to have to try this in the upcoming year. I was considering making a Shaker style chair, because it looks simplier to make, but Windsor is more to my liking. As theysay, nothing ventured – nothing gained.

I would recommend buying plans. That will make it much easier. If you can’t find any you like I could give you some basic dimensions. Contact me when you are ready to begin.
Windsor chairs are just so elegant. I feel pride every time I sit down to dinner!

Have your say...
