This is one of six Windsor chairs I built completely out of red oak. I got the plan from Drew Langsner’s book The ChairMaker’s Workshop. Not a true Windsor in the purest sense because the entire chair is made out of red oak but that’s the wood I had lying around at the time so I used it. I built six of them at once for a dining room table set I was making.

Hi Billy, making the six chairs at once was by far the biggest project I ever worked on. There were chair parts everywhere in my shop! However, when I made all the same parts at one time, I discovered that they became much faster and easier to make once I knew what I was doing.
Very nice work. My spouse has informed me she wants six of them. I hope mine turn out as well as yours did.
Thanks! I finished it with green stain when I built the chairs but later painted them black to match the the ver changing decor of the dining room.
the chair is fantastic. it looks verry clean. i was curiouse if you painted the chair or did you use an iron buff soloution to ebonize it? what ever you did it came out extremely well. looks great
