Greenwood Ladderback Chairs


These chairs have a evolutionary history dating back to the 17th century. They are constructed by first splitting the wood from logs while they are freshly fallen usually salvaged from tree trimming companies. The wood is rived and roughly dimensioned using a drawknife and the back legs steam bent. The wood is then dried in a small kiln with the final shaping and fitting done with a drawknife and spoke shave. The refined hand-tool marks are not sanded but left as marks of pride of the maker.
