Continuous Arm Rocking Chair

Presented by Alastair Boell

This is the Melbourne Guild’s third chair resulting from Peter Galbert’s teaching visit to Australia. This iconic Windsor chair rocker will undoubtedly interest those who have already completed our introductory Fan Back Windsor chair.

The Continuous Arm Windsor chair, in my opinion is the most beautiful Windsor chair, with its graceful steam bent crest rail. Add to this, the complexity of the ‘rocker system’ and you have an intriguing and inspiring seven day Windsor chair making experience.

During this course, you will learn how to steam bend the crest rail, carve and fit your spindles, carve your seat and fit your legs, stretcher system and rockers perfectly with all its complex angles and joinery. You’ll learn to use proficiently all the unique tools associated the making of a Windsor chair. Time permitting, you will also learn to finish the chair in natural oil or traditional milk paint imported from the USA.
