Woodworker: John Steele DavisDavis started out building traditional furniture and Windsor chairs, but then began making his twist on the traditional using the gnarled wood of the Mississippi forests, where trees and vines twist and spiral together as they grow and compete for light and nutrients. The resulting wood is the basis for all of Davis’s work. The Windsor-style chair (18 in. deep by 18 in. wide by 40 in. tall) has a poplar seat with sweetgum legs, stretchers, head rest, and front spindles. The rockers are elm and the back spindles are privet. The finish is an oil stain followed with linseed oil. Photo: David Lyco From Fine Woodworking #207
