A little about Abel's Ohio Windsor 18th century Windsor chair, and Windsor furniture creations.

Our Windsor chair business is very small, but full of a lot of heart.  We ( Bob & Connie) gather our log material from our hometown area.  To make our custom order Windsor chairs.  We try to stay within the boundaries of the original Windsor design and construction, (18th century).

We use all original hand tools in the making of our Windsor chairs.  The wood lathe, bench vise, and shaving horse are extensively used in the Windsor shop.

The spindles are riven, (split) from the log and whittled to size, with a drawknife and spoke shave.

A two inch thick block of wood is used in the making of the seat.  While standing over the seat swinging the gutter adz between my feet, the seat saddle is roughed into shape.  This is an interesting beginning for all the Windsor chair seats.

The bows, arms, and crest are riven and then steam bent on our own custom forms.

 All our chair legs, stretchers, medial stretchers and front arm spindles are riven from the log, (usually hard maple) and roughed into round billets.  They are then stored to dry.  Later they will be finished turned by hand with much detain in creating these Windsor parts.

 

Windsors proudly made in the U.S.A.
