I just finished taking a Democratic chair class with Blake. It was great! He is very informative and knowledgable about making Windsor chairs. He is a wonderful instructor. The classes are six days long and eight to nine hours a day. It is very unique to have classes like these so near us. I am taking a similar one in New Hampshire in April where I am having to ship tools to and manage to ship my chair plus tools back to Dallas.
One unique thing about the classes is that the chairs are made using wet wood. So Blake provide a log, for my class a red oak, and you split out all the parts for the chair from the log.
