4 Drawer Armoire

$5800

If you are short on closet space my 4 drawer armoire is the perfect solution. By combining drawers with hanging space it provides a place for everything. The construction details are the same as in my fully dovetailed 5 and 7 drawer bureaus: dovetailed top and sides, drawer frames and drawers, rabbeted pine back and hardwood drawer interiors. This piece can also be modified for use as an entertainment center by replacing the drawers with another set of doors.

Pencil Post Bed

Twin $2100. Full $2195. Queen $2195. King $2495

The delicately tapered octagonal posts of my pencil post bed are capped by your choice of finials (as shown) or canopy frame. Sturdy angle iron brackets support your boxspring and mattress and knock down mortice and tenon joinery permits complete disassembly for UPS shipping.

Continuous Arm Chair $750

Bowback Chair $650

My version of the classic windsor chair is light and elegant looking but don't be fooled by it's looks. It is as ruggedly constructed as any chair you will find. The legs as well as all of the ash spindles extend all the way through the seat and are glued and wedged in place. In addition 12 of the 16 spindles also extend through the arm/back and are glued and wedged. The four rungs provide excellent support to the legs yet are placed high enough be out of the way. While this chair is most often used as a dining chair, it also works well as an occasional chair in the living room, study or bedroom.

Extension tables

Available in a wide range of sizes, my round and oval extension tables are by far the most popular dining table I sell. The most common sizes are listed below but custom sizes are easily done. Rectangular extension tables are available as well.

48" round w/ 1 22" leaf (seats 6) $1700

48" round w/ 2 22" leaves (seats 8) $2100

72" x 48" oval w/ 1 22" leaf (seats 8) $2200

72" x 48" oval w/ 2 22"leaves (seats 10) $2600

I operate a small woodworking shop in Putney, Vermont and have been designing and making furniture one piece at a time since 1982. Over the years I have developed a line of Shaker furniture and Windsor chairs. In addition to my "standard" line of Shaker furniture I also do a considerable amount of custom work ranging from minor changes to standard pieces to designing and building completely new designs. I hope you will take the time to explore my complete Shaker Furniture website and feel free to contact me at Richard@BissellWoodworking.com if you have any questions or comments. Also, if you're ever in my corner of Vermont please stop in and visit my workshop and showroom.
