This tool reams the arm stump and leg holes in the seat to a six-degree taper. A set screw adjusts the blade’s depth of cut.


A variety of sizes to cut tenons on legs, posts and spindles.  Sets are also available.


These travishers are made specifically for chair seats. Brass soles are attached to the walnut bodies for increased wear resistance.


riving logsOak blanks are split from an log to ensure straight grained, knot-free chair parts. They are shipped green (wet).


Bending forms for bending your own chair backs.


Bent backs are riven from an oak log, shaved with a drawknife and spokeshave, steam bent and then thoroughly dried. They are the same bent bows and crests I use in my chairs.


Chair LegsThese crisp, well-proportioned chair turnings are riven (split) from a hard maple log and hand turned when still green. Hard maple is extremely strong and holds a sharp edge — riving ensures straight grain for strength.


Each 2-hour Zoom class has a demonstration session immediately followed by a Q&A. The recording will be published a few hours after each class ends (each class’ recording is free in perpetuity for everyone who purchased the class).

“The travisher was amazing! I was stressing about this tool, because there is so much information on the internet about how to use it, how it works different that you’d expect, blah, blah, blah. This tool was totally intuitive…”

“I have received my turnings, and wow, they are great. The detail is so crisp, I have a lot of learning and practice to do to achieve this level. I’m going to make a more refined chair now to blend with your excellent turnings.”
