Windsor Chair

The project’s construction was inspired by the classic American Single and Double Rod-Back side Chair. This example was chosen for the marvelous combination of simple geometric shapes and elegance simultaneously. The design is not overloaded with any additional sophisticated elements, making it lightweight and exquisite.

Shaving horse

A shaving horse is an essential tool for building a Windsor chair traditionally utilizing only hand equipment. Developing this device was the first stage of the Windsor chair Project.
During the manufacturing process, the team has faced not only several challenges such as working with raw wood dealing with bodger ways of development, but also gained different completely new skills, including a log treatment with hand tools.

Problem

  • Build a Windsor chair utilizing only hand tools.
  • Identify and apply key features of the chair in the project.
  • Organize successful teamwork at all stages of development.
  • Meet deadline.
