Scott Horne, Minneapolis Chair maker
Handcrafted Cherry Wood Chairs
Scott Horne, Minneapolis, MN, offers rare and beautiful Windsor chairs made from 100% American Cherry with a touch of Red Oak in my Continuous Armchair(see Chair Gallery).
Alongside a foundation in documented history (Evans,1996), my 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, spoke shaves and drawknives to wood turning and modern sanding equipment.

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.
