Woodworker: Mark BellonbyAfter four years learning the craft of Windsor-chair making, Bellonby took the traditional design and added his own touches when he built this chair for his daughter and son-in-law. He says the pierced back splat and monogrammed comb gave him a chance to express his own style in what is otherwise a somewhat restricted form. Except for the cypress seat and cherry back splat, the chair is made of red oak split and riven from trees on Bellonby’s property in Virginia. The arm, spindles, and comb are steam-bent. The chair, which is 16-in. deep by 27-in. wide by 44-in. tall, is finished with gold leaf, black enamel, and varnish. It took about 70 hours to complete.
