Traditional Windsor Chair Making with Jim Rendi, Paperback / softback Book

Traditional Windsor Chair Making with Jim Rendi Paperback / softback


Basic, step-by-step instructions for building a comb-back Windsor chair, using traditional methods.

With the simplest of hand tools and a lathe, even the amateur can produce a beautiful chair.

Each step is illustrated and the patterns for the parts are given, along with measured drawings.

Finally, various jigs and specialized tools like the steamer are explained and methods of constructing them given.

Jim Rendi has captured all the skill of the colonial chair maker and shares it with his readers.

His Philadelphia Chair Company specializes in Windsor chairs of several traditional styles, but this comb back is among the favorite.

A gallery at the end of the book shares other styles of Windsors that use much the same methods.
