This lady is putting some sincere thought into buying one of these chairs. I am also putting some less serious thought into taking up woodworking as a hobby. Likely more practical to just acquire a nice rocking chair and keep knitting though.

EPISODE 1: Join Matt Kinman as he visits with Mark Newberry, a 5th generation chair maker on Jennings Creek, near Red Boiling Springs, TN.  You can see more about Mark and his family’s chairs at their website:  http://www.newberryandsonschairs.com

EPISODE 2: Join Matt Kinman as he and Mark Newberry continue the process of building a crooked back common chair.  From milling the lumber to weaving the hickory seat.  You can see more about Mark and his family’s chairs at their website:  http://www.newberryandsonschairs.com/

Unrelated to chairs, that puppy is just breaking my heart!
