Boxes & a chair for sale

It’s been a while since I had stock on hand to sell. I finished an oak box recently and dug out a butternut one from the loft. Up there was a ladderback chair as well. So here goes. If you’d like any of these, leave me a comment and we’ll sort out the details, usually it’s either paypal or a check. Prices include shipping in US. And just a reminder that I take custom orders as well – I have some chairs underway for people who ordered them.

The inside features a lidded till. The sides and bottoms of tills are made from what I find around the shop. In this case, a black walnut till side.

CARVED BOX – SOLD

This box is butternut (juglans cinerea) except for the rear board & cleats under the lid, which are red oak. It’s a big box, the boards I had on hand dictated the size. And in turn allowed a lot of carving…

This is one of my chairs patterned after Jennie Alexander’s chair. Mine’s a bit heavier in its parts (& overall) than JA’s. But hers were the lightest of all.

One thought on “Boxes & a chair for sale

  1. Any chance you could post what changes you make to scale down a Jenny Chair to kid-sized? I was thinking maybe 3/4 or 1/2 size, but I’m not really sure. I know you’ve made some in the past.

    I’m sitting on the porch in one of my Jenny chairs with Shaker tape seat. Hickory seats are the prettiest, but Shaker tape with foam in between is the comfiest! I also bent this one in the radial plane and the rays are so pretty on the post flats, thanks for that suggestion a while back.

    Thanks, Jason
