The Windsor chair is an enduring style of American chair with its roots in English country outdoor furniture. Hand made Windsor chairs have been in the United States since the mid-1700s. Each chair and all of its parts are handmade here in my Aston, PA shop. Locally sourced woods, such as white pine, poplar, maple, oak, hickory, ash, cherry, sycamore and walnut are used in particular parts of the chair, just as they were back in the colonial days. Through the efforts of local craftsman like myself, the Windsor chair will endure for many more years. But this is not all we do. Various wooden items are also made such as stools, benches, coffee tables, walking sticks, canes, beer/wine/growler caddies, pens, bowls and snowmen.
