File this one under “Why I Love My Job.” The November 16 Balloon Backs chair class is in session this week. In this class everyone makes two balloon back Windsors, an early 19th century variation on the bow back side chair. Kelly Rothermel is attending the class with her father, His Grace Kurt,
The November 2 settee class is underway as I write this posting. The students are mounting their arm rails. Boy, do I have egg all over my face. Those of you who have made this chair know that when we lay out the seat for saddling we run the compass all the way around the complete shape.
