Using vintage tools, Vermont native Randall Henson makes Windsor Chairs the old fashioned way, one at a time.

Chisels, gouges and wooden spokeshaves transform wood in heirloom seating in about 70 hours.

Shown here is the Windsor Sackback Rocker, with a soldier blue milk paint and oil finish.

Each chair is made of basswood, red oak, maple and cherry.
