About Joe

Joe has been making Windsor chairs and restoring period furniture in beautiful Lancaster County Pennsylvania for almost thirty years. After working as an engineering model maker, his time spent in a prestigious Lancaster County restoration and conservation shop allowed him access to some of the finest examples of Windsor furniture available. From here, Joe was able to choose the finest examples to reproduce, for both elegance and comfort. Paying special attention to period construction and jointery techniques,as well as historically accurate colors and surfaces, Joe’s chairs capture the 18th century in in both form and function.
Our pieces are built to last more than a lifetime. We work with locally sourced woods, including hard maple for the base, two inch thick tuplip poplar for the seats, and tough and resilient hickory or red oak for the spindles, steam bent arms, bows and crestrails. While we are quite proud of the form and construction of our chairs, it is the paint surfaces that set us apart. DeLuca Windsors have been shipped coast to coast as well as Germany and numerous museums in the east.
When not in the shop, Joe enjoys coaching youth lacrosse, searching for arrow heads on surrounding farms, and tending his not so award winning vegetable garden.
