by Peter Galbert

In this much-anticipated text, Galbert presents a comprehensive illustrated account of the process he has distilled over decades spent mastering the craft of chairmaking.

Analyzing every step from initial design to final finish, he blends traditional approaches with his own insights, involving simple techniques, jigs and tools he has developed to address common pitfalls.

Although the methods described pertain primarily to Windsor chair construction, they can be readily applied to other chair styles. Not just of interest to chairmakers, however, the book demystifies the subject of working with green wood, from harvesting and preparing logs to specialized joinery.

The clear and engaging text is richly supplemented by over 500 illustrations drawn by the author, depicting the intricacies of every step to make the often daunting material easily approachable. An exhaustive guide to a subject under-represented in woodworking literature, by one of its most widely respected practitioners.
 
Hardcover, 8-1/2" x 11", 403 pages, 2015.

We also offer full-size annotated patterns for components of two chair designs found in the book – a fan-back chair and a balloon-back chair.

Printed on a single 36" x 48" sheet, they include turning patterns for legs, stretchers and posts, cutting templates of seat shapes, fan-back crest shape, balloon-back profile and bending forms.
