Portrait of Luke Barnett

Luke Barnett, a Michigan chairmaker, specializes in American Windsor chairs, which he has been crafting since 2011. Although he has worked as a full-time chairmaker for only two years, he has earned awards and has chairs on display in The Way We Work, a traveling exhibition organized by the Smithsonian Institution.

Barnett strives for beauty, comfort, and durability in each chair he makes. He starts with locally sourced raw materials, choosing maple and oak logs that he splits and rives to ensure a straight grain with strength and flexibility. He uses traditional joinery to assemble the pieces, further strengthened with hide glue.

Barnett also mixes his own milk paints and uses shellac flakes. He applies an oil/varnish blend top coat based on a formula passed down to him from an Alaskan boat builder.

He sells his work from his home in Adrian, Michigan, as well as online.
