Windsor Chair Class with Peter Galbert

I had a feeling I was going to have difficulty blogging during class. 

Here are a few of the high points from my Windsor Chair Class at Port Townsend School of Woodworking.

  1. Looks like a good time. What was the most valuable tip you learned, while there?

      Making a Windsor Chair in 60 hours (it was a six day class) .. for me is nuts!

      Most every thing was new for me .. draw knife, how we used our spoke shaves, inshaves, travishers .. they’re all valuable tools for chair making.

      The smartest thing I did was print out Peter’s book in pdf, bound it and brought it with me to help me remember what I was doing. That helped immensely since soooo much new stuff was coming at me.

  2. The seat looks amazing. Glad you had a good time.

    Was it locally-sourced wood?

    Locally-sourced wood? Most of the books refer to primarily Eastern sourced logs. I know Peter’s book pays reference to other options.

    Great looking class and a very fine shave horse in action.

    Feeling the urge to make more of those Damned spindles yet? 🙂
