George Sawyer is a second-generation Windsor chairmaker, living and working in Woodbury, Vermont. He continues to produce the designs that were perfected by his father, David Sawyer, while re-envisioning a future for fine craftsmanship and hand joinery in modern seating. Produced one at a time, our chairs are heirloom quality and will last a lifetime.
Our chairs are made with the same techniques as the Windsors of 200 years ago, using the same materials and many of the same tools. Extreme care and attention to detail is given to each chair through its shaping, hand carving, and fine finishing. Our use of ‘green’ wood allows our shaping to follow the natural grain of the wood, and insures that our chairs are built to last.
Founded by David Sawyer, Sawyer Made produces chairs that are of exceptional quality and beauty. David’s work can be found in the Boston Museum of Fine Arts, and enhancing homes across the country. He has been featured in numerous publications, including Fine Woodworking, Home Furniture, American Woodturner, and Northern Woodlands. When Dave retired in 2014, George followed in his father’s footsteps and took over production and the instruction for the Windsor Chair courses. George is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, won a Best in Show award from the 2013 Vermont Fine Furniture Design Competition and has been featured in the New York Times, Mortise & Tenon magazine, and goop.com.
George was recently featured in T: the New York Times Style Magazine
