Sanpete county, Spring City (Utah) handmade Windsor chair by Jock Jones, signed and dated 2006. Price:  $500.00
Excellent condition.

Bio of Jock Jones, from the Spring City (Utah) Arts website:  My name is Jonathan (Jock) Jones. I am a master chair builder having been formally trained in the art of Windsor chair construction and design by Curtis Buchanan and Michael Dunbar, nationally recognized as two of the best Windsor chair builders in the country.

I am the only Windsor chair maker in the Intermountain West. Windsor chair construction requires the use of both green and dry hardwoods that simply do not grow in the West. This is why Windsor chair making is an Eastern craft and why nearly all chair makers are located east of the Mississippi River. In order to build chairs here in the Intermountain West I personally hand pick my logs and lumber from dealers in the East and haul them to my shop in Spring City, Utah.

I make my chairs one at a time by hand. I use the same methods and tools as the colonial chair makers did 250 years ago. I do not build them by hand for old time sake or nostalgia. I build them by hand because these chairs were not designed to be made by machines….they were designed to be made by hand. When the machine age arrived the construction of beautiful well-built Windsor’s disappeared. Windsor Chairs simply cannot be mass-produced by machines and retain their delicate grace and strength. Factory made chairs are heavy and clunky. They lack the delicate grace and charm of the wonderful chairs made by old time master chair builders.

Because these chairs are handmade, each one is a little different. They have tool marks on them. They are not perfect pieces turned out by machine. They differ slightly in size, shape and color. They are handmade pieces of art. Each one is signed and dated. They will be family heirlooms for generations. Unlike factory made chairs the value of these chairs will appreciate in value with each passing year.
