CURTIS BUCHANAN

 
Curtis Buchanan builds Windsor chairs in much the same way they were made 200 years ago, and has been a full-time chairmaker since 1984. He works from a small one-man shop located in the heart of the Historic District in Jonesborough, Tenn.

He has published numerous articles on chairmaking and has taught at craft schools both in the United States and abroad. His chairs are in the permanent collection of the Tennessee State Museum, the Southern Highlands Craft Guild, the Tennessee State Governor's Mansion and Monticello, the home of Thomas Jefferson.

Curtis is also the co-founder of GreenWood, a community-based sustainable forestry initiative in Latin America. You can read more about Curtis and his work at curtisbuchananchairmaker.com.
