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 represents an ancient tradition that uses the wood’s natural shrinking and swelling to keep the joinery tight. An important element in this tradition is wood selection. Red maple for the legs and slats and hickory for the rungs ensures the longest life for your handmade chair.
