Terry Kelly, Master Windsor Chair Maker

If you haven't discovered my friend, Terry Kelly, his website and blog, you owe it to yourself to find out what kind of chairs this guy can make!


This chair reminds me of one that is in Michael Dunbar's book on Windsor chair making, the original is at Jefferson's Monticello, but honestly, Terry's chair has surpassed the beauty and originality of the Jefferson chair. I can only imagine what it is like to be in the presence of this chair, I'm not sure that I would want to sit in it, I only want to look at it like, it is a wonderful piece of sculpture!

  1. Looks reminiscent of Velda's Arm Chair by Curtis Buchanan with a Bird Cage twist. Definitely miles ahead of a Dunbar though. Turnings are more unique. Very nice work.
