Windsor Low Back Writing Arm
This is a Windsor Low Back Writing Arm. I made it by splitting green Maple for the legs strechers and arm stumps. Red Oak was spit from the log to make the back spindles, and kiln dried poplar was used for the arm (crest rail) , writing paddle and seat. The entire chair was made start to finish with only hand tools just ike it would be done 250 years ago. Although not able to be seen in these pictures the drawer under the writing paddle is actually a trapiziod shape and has handcut dovetails. I finished the Chair with a Mustard Milk Paint, then a Barn Red Milk paint, rubbed through in wear areas and sealed it with a coat of Linseed Oil, followed by a coat of Wax.
