The ultimate guide to chairmaking!

Making a Windsor chair is one of the purest forms of woodworking--and one of the most fulfilling. With a few specialized tools, greenwood straight from the forest and some expert instruction, even beginners can craft an heirloom.

In this book, chairmaking expert Mike Dunbar will show you exactly how. Dunbar, who has personally taught more than 3,000 students over the last 30 years, details every step in building sackback and continuous-arm Windsors. You'll learn how to:

Choose and use the tools you need for efficient work.
Carve a comfortable seat.
Make well-proportioned legs, stretchers and spindles.
Rive and steam-bend a chair back.
Assemble joints for a perfect fit the first time.

Plus, this expanded edition (with 32 additional pages) includes a chapter on fixing chairmaking mistakes, one of the most common issues Mike's students ask about.

Follow the professional tricks, tips, and techniques in this updated and expanded edition and you'll have a chair that will stay tight and true for generations.
