Enfield Shaker Dining Chair - unassembled and unfinished kit
This style of dining chair was first made by Brother Micajah Tucker in 1834 and was used in the dining rooms at both Shaker villages in New Hampshire--Canterbury and Enfield. No doubt the Shakers were well satisfied--the wood seat allows for easy clean up and the chair slides under a table when not in use. Seat is solid Eastern white pine. Turnings and back slat are hard maple.
Shown in a red mahogany stain and lacquer topcoat, like the originals. Due to the color variation between the pine and maple components, we recommend a stain or paint finish for this piece. Dimensions (approximate): height of seat 18"; height of back 28"; width of back 16"; overall footprint 18" x 18".
This item is an unassembled and unfinished kit. All physical components to make this as a project are included along with instructions, however, you will be required to provide the necessary sandpaper, glue, and finish--as well as be reasonably comfortable with your own skills to obtain a satisfactory result.
