Curtis Buchanan – Chair Maker

Curtis 9

Curtis Buchanan makes chairs. I wanted to write about it because Curtis has very kindly posted 51 videos online, documenting the build of just one of his stunning Windsor comb-back chairs. The extraordinary time it takes to make one chair and the detail he lavishes on making every element fit correctly is a real education. Curtis’s Tennessee drawl and ‘matter-of-fact’ way of working is addictive viewing. I hope he does more of these tutorials.

*UPDATE* Caleb James will soon have plans available for Curtis’s Continuous Arm Chair.
