Windsor Chairs by Dan

I build heirloom quality Windsor chairs by hand, one at a time. My goal is to craft you a beautiful piece that is worthy of being passed down through generations – learn more on my process page. My one-person workshop is located in rural Central Maine. All materials are locally sourced and responsibly harvested.

New Rocker available

rocker1I’m excited to announce that I’m now making this beautiful rocking chair in my Central Maine shop!
Designed by World Renowned Chairmaker Peter Galbert @petergalbert, this rocker is not only visually stunning but also remarkably comfortable. The curved spindles hold and support your back just right while the curvature of the rocker blades allows you to recline to the perfect angle.

Please message me directly if you’re interested in commissioning one of these gorgeous rocking chairs.
