Thanks for that Tom - saner words were never spoken.  I really like to build
Windsor chairs because if the 4 legs are at 4 different angles, you can’t tell.
The seat is created by eye so is not symmetrical side to side, or one chair to
the next.  The tip of the seat, the shape of the turnings, the back.   Spindles
are all different sizes (why do we make them with hand tools when you know they
were made on a lathe as soon as one became available?).  - it’s all an inexact
sceince - that’s why I like ‘em.
