Greenwood Chair

A classic post-and-rung chair grown out of ancient woodworking techniques.

Brian’s woodworking career began with the greenwood chair over a quarter century ago. It is his pleasure to keep this traditional way of chairmaking alive and apply all he has learned about designing for comfort.

The greenwood chair embodies an ancient tradition that uses the wood’s natural shrinking and swelling to keep the joinery tight. An essential element in this tradition is wood selection: green, fresh red maple for the legs and slats, with dried hickory for the rungs. After the chair is assembled, the high-moisture maple dries around the hickory, resulting in a strong, long-lasting handmade chair without the use of nails or glue.

The greenwood chair is available with your choice of seat weaving and finish options.
