Hubby is working on a Philadelphia fanback with arms at the present time. I don't have a clue where we are going to put this chair when he finishes it, because we are presently housing four bow back Windsors around our kitchen table, four more bow back Windsors scattered all over the house and the first bow back Windsor he made a John C. Campbell Folk School is gracing our foyer. So, does any body want to buy four bow back Windsor chairs? All the spindles of these chairs are made from oak trees he actually cut with his own hands, the legs are maple and the seats are white pine. All have antique finishes, except for the first one, which he painted green. GREEN!? Yes, the first Windsor chairs were actually 18th Century lawn chairs. They were mostly used outside and they were all painted.
He has watched Norm Abrham's video on making a Windsor chair so many times I think I could make a chair myself. I'm positive I can put the finish on it, because that is part of the video.
