We are Windsor chair makers trained at The Windsor Institute and taught by Mike Dunbar
in Hampton, New Hampshire. My wife Caron and I make colonial style Windsor chairs by
hand, just the way they were made 275 years ago, keeping with tradition of the early crafters
of that time.
Caron milk paints all the chairs herself with two coats of Old Fashioned Milk Paint which
is non-toxic when dried, biodegradable and lead free, making it safe for children, pets and the
enviroment. The chairs are then hand rubbed with boiled linseed oil that seals in the painted
surface which will mellow in time to a beautiful patina. All chairs are milk painted with the
Old Fashioned Milk Paint color(s) in your choice of ;
1-Pitch Black 2-Lexington Green 3-Salem Red
4-Soldier Blue 5-Mustard 6-Pumpkin
~ Ask about the availabilty of other colors not normally stocked ~
We construct all our chairs with up to four types of wood : White Pine for the seat, Hickory
or Hard Maple for the legs and stretchers, Red Oak for the arms, bows, spindles and crest
when required. Other types of wood can be used if a customer request it.
All crest, arms and bows are steam bent and wedged together without the use of nails
or screws resulting in a perfectly tight fit, ensuring a lasting piece of furniture.
Caron also has her own line of jewelry that she makes by hand in her shop. Each piece
is unique and a "one-of-a-kind". She can also make a personal piece for you if you
have a special look or style you are looking for. Click onto the "Hand Made Jewelery By
Caron" page and see what all she makes.
