General Information on how we prepare and present our Windsor Kitchen Chairs.
Windsor chairs were made using the 'green wood' technique whereby drying timber formed tight joints and so removing the need for glue. Over decades and the advent of central heating, the Aga, etc, these joints can become loose.
All our chairs have the main joints discreetly dowelled and wedged. These are then trimmed and coloured out. All chairs are carefully cleaned and finished with either a thin coat of Shellac, wax polished or burnished to to produce a soft sheen.
The images below also show how we determone chair dimensions.
