Bow-Back Windsor Chair With Drawer 1770-1790

The Brighton Woodshop of Raymond Maine, is proud to present this beautiful one of a kind handmade Windsor chair; a fine replica of a Cut Arm Bow-Back Windsor with a pipe box drawer. It was replicated from a photo taken from Wallace Nutting's classic book 'American Windsors' published back in 1906.
Our Windsor Chair's Red Oak backrest consists of seven spoke-shaved spindles, each securely hand wedged. It's crowned at the top with a simple Red Oak comb. The chair's ample bottom is a single 21" x 16" wide pine plank.
This handsome and super comfy chair stands 49 1/2" tall at the crest and 32" across from arm to arm. The legs, stretcher assembly and arm stumps are made of native Maine Silver Maple.
There's a small drawer tucked underneath the left arm made of antique Hemlock, super handy for storing writing or smoking implements.
Finally the chair is painted with a base coat of traditional red milk paint, lightly rubbed and distressed, then painted again in black, hand rubbed once more to expose some of the red underneath and finished with three coats of beeswax and citrus oil.
