Woodworker: Bill PerryPerry set out to make a comb-back Windsor chair that was as light and graceful as possible while still maintaining its strength. The chair has a poplar seat, maple legs and stretchers, and ash spindles, crest rail, and arms. It is 28 in. deep by 31 in. wide by 47 in. tall and is finished with two coats of red milk paint, followed by one coat of black milk paint and two coats of boiled linseed oil. With time, the black paint will be worn through to the red. From Fine Woodworking #203 Photo: Charles Bryant
