DVD (Video also available)

We have an excellent DVD available for those who wish to see the potential of Ashem Tools. It is a detailed step by step instruction on making a simple Windsor style dining chair from drawing to assembly.

This unique DVD from Ashem Crafts is unlike all other woodworking films available today. Whether a complete beginner or experienced chairmaker, this DVD is for you. The Rotary Planes are clearly demonstrated, including the sharpening and setting of the tools. The Rounders and Trapping Plane are used in conjunction with the Turning-Head to make all the component parts for a comb back Windsor Chair.

Methods of marking out, saddling the seat, determining sight lines and drilling angles are all clearly shown, as well as drilling the seat, legs, stretchers and comb - The DVD then shows a final dry assembly of the chair.

The principles involved here for chairmaking are the same for other Windsor or Shaker style of chair, so the scope for chairmakers is very varied.

A working drawing is included with every DVD.
