Nestled in the heart of the Finger Lakes Region of upstate New York, Chicone Cabinetmakers School of Windsor offers a five-day Windsor chair making course several times throughout the year. Traditional green woodworking techniques are used across the course as students craft a bench-made sack-back Windsor chair. (Advanced classes are available for students after successful completion of the sack back instruction).
Classes are run by Vincent Chicone, a third generation woodworker, and supported by Chicone Cabinetmaker staff. Class size is limited to 5 students per course. Students are guided through each step of the process, learning not only the how, but also the why. At the end of the course students will have their individually handcrafted chair but more than that they will have gained the experience and proficiency needed to craft Windsor chairs in their home workshop.
