I am currently not taking any new orders due to increased demand, but I encourage anyone interested in Windsor Chairmaking to attend one of my classes taught at the Sam Beauford Woodworking Institute. Learn high quality craftsmanship from a master and create your own family heirloom.
Customers can pick from any chairs on this website. I am open to making reproduction historical chairs if the chair is deemed the best in quality in proportion, design and construction. I encourage any potential clients to visit my gorgeous shop in Adrian, Mi. I enjoy showing people what I do and how I do it. I am in the shop all the time but please give me a bit of notice ahead of time so that I may set time aside for you.
A 50% non-refundable deposit is due upon placing your order. You may pay by personal check through the mail, or by credit card with a 2.7% surcharge. Upon receipt of your deposit, your chair will be placed in the production scheduled for construction and I will inform you of an estimated completion date. Depending on the time of the year and workload, this may be between 6 months and 16 months. I make each chair one by one by myself to ensure that everything is perfect. I can make about one chair per week on average. I have been very fortunate to have many happy customers that have provided me orders and referrals that have me booked for many months ahead of time. Craftsmanship cannot be rushed You will be contacted approximately 10 days before shipping. Any remaining balance must be paid before the order will be shipped.
