There is a quiet joy that comes with the approach of winter; a settling, an appreciation of shorter lines and less traffic, the putting on of favorite sweaters.. There is also a reluctant goodbye to the contagious energy of the “busy months,” and the delight it brings to see friends and customers — some of whom have been coming for decades — each year returning with new guests, children, and grand-children to experience Windsor Chairmakers for themselves.
It is a small team of us here, 13 in total, and every person plays an integral role in our operation. Not only with what they can make with their hands, but also in how they interact with the many visitors we show through our doors. While most come to look at the finished pieces displayed in our showroom, many are equally excited to walk through the shop, talk with our crew as they work, share photos of their own wood-crafting, toss the ball with Sitka, and be, for a moment, surrounded by the hum and sawdust of a busy, working woodshop.
Windsor Chairmakers has been hand-crafting custom, traditional, American furniture for over 35 years out of our shop and showroom in Lincolnville, Maine.
With a commitment to quality that will last generations, our small crew ensures that every piece is made to your exact specifications– working with you every step of the way from its design to its finish.
