Seat Blanks

Welcome chairmakers! Sourcing quality chair making materials can be difficult. I am now offering eastern white pine seat blanks as a service to other chairmakers. All blanks are completely air dried for a minimum of 16-17 months before they are for sale. Air-dried seats carve a little nicer than kiln-dried and are less brittle. I purchase these as 9/4" thick x 21" wide by various lengths. I then cut them 8' to 10' long that allows me to make a neat, level and elevated air-drying stack, which is covered with metal roofing, then the ends are double sealed with anchor seal. The material is purchased from a mill in Maine and stored on our family property in Maine which is then air dried for one year, allowing me to transport them 300 miles home to Connecticut at a much lighter weight. Once home, I then re-stack the blanks outdoors for a few more months before bringing them into the shop for the last couple months and then they are finally ready for my use or for sale.
