Benches, Stools, and Chairs


A Guide to Ergonomic Woven Seating by Walter Turpening & Deborah Held

Add to Basket
Book Description

Walter Turpening has been designing and perfecting custom seating for crafters and artistic creators (particularly weavers, knitters, handspinners, and musicians) for 20-plus years. His signature cotton-cord, curved, woven seats on fine woodworked frames are fervently desired by those who have sampled his seating, and he operates on an average two-year waiting list. In recent years, he has expanded his repertoire to include ergonomic office chairs and barstools. In this book, he shares what he has learned in his journey as a chair maker to help you make the bench or chair of your dreams.

At the heart of Walter's methods is making each seat specifically to fit the individual while working at their favorite craft or intended use. He teaches how to take the measurements needed for perfect ergonomic comfort, and how to apply them to create your perfect seat. With his step-by-step instructions, photos, and diagrams, you will see how Walter creates his custom seating, and be able to replicate his techniques in your own benches, stools, and chairs.
