Handcrafted Cherry Wood Chairs

Scott Horne, Minneapolis, MN, offers rare and beautiful Windsor chairs made from 100% American Cherry.

Alongside a foundation in documented history (Evans,1996), my Windsor chairs offer an uncommon allure due to being...well...being made from a single, unpainted hardwood, which is a simple fact, but a rare and demanding feat.  Most Windsors were painted and consisted of a variety of woods.  My chairs, thus, exude history, but also confront it.

I use both traditional and modern techniques: from chisels and spoke shaves to wood turning and modern sanding equipment.

Scott’s research into the history of chair designs really shows in the classic details of each and every one of his creations.

History

In the 1980’s, I was inspired–first by peasant  carpenters in Paraguay, and next, by an assortment of Kentuckians in rural Monroe County–to pursue, and celebrate, the craft of chairmaking.
