Bob Dillion explains his approach to chair-making: "In my small shop near Hackensack, Minnesota, I build reproductions of traditional Windsor chairs as well as other furniture, mostly traditional in style. You will find lots of hand tools in my shop, but not many of the powered kind. You will not see large production runs underway or a crew of workers kicking up lots of dust. You will just find me, at the lathe, the shave-horse or the bench."
