Traditional Hand-made Windsor Chairs

David-SaltmarshHello. My name is David Saltmarsh. I am chair maker living and working in West Dorset on my family smallholding.

I started off making straight copies of traditional windsor chairs. My chairs have evolved somewhat but I still aspire to the old styles and techniques. Power tool use is kept to a minimum and the machinery that I do use is powered by the wind and sun.

The finished result is a chair that takes many hours to build and will last for generations.
