Shaker Furniture: Shaker inspired handcrafted furniture
While the Shakers were famous for their ladderback chairs, Bissell prefers to make Windsor chairs. His reason: Windsor chairs, he says, are much more comfortable and durable.
Bissell's wood of choice is cherry, but he also builds using maple, oak and walnut. No plywood or veneered wood is used. Drawer sides and bottoms and the slides are made of hardwood.
