Learn the craft of working with wood under experienced carpenter and cabinetmaker Tommy Kelly. This January I’m teaching a new two-day class at Highland Woodworking in Atlanta on building sawbenches using Windsor-chair techniques. I’m excited to teach this class because it will be the first time I’ve ventured into teaching Windsor techniques. During the class, we’ll learn about prepping stock by hand, making octagonal legs, creating tapered tenons and mortises, and lots about wood technology. I make a tapered tenon, usually using a tapered tenon cutter that has a 12° included angle (or 6° off the vertical).

I’ve built Windsor- and Welsh-style chairs for more than 10 years (not to mention Roorkee chairs), but this is my first toe into the water on teaching Windsor technology.
John Hoffman, my partner at Lost Art Press, built the pair shown above about four years ago. My question is this: doesn’t the shoulder defeat the purpose of the taper by preventing the tenon from pressing up into the tapered mortise? The conical shape stops the leg from going in too far and every time you place weight on it you are tightening the joint. But last night as I was trying to get to sleep I realized that I wasn’t going to be able to prop the lid of my tool chest open against a wall. Unlike many other books on making scale furniture, John Davenport assumes beginners need to be shown standard woodworking techniques and hand tools.
