Though Tappan Chairs have been made in Sandwich and only in Sandwich since 1819 the historic brand of Shaker style chair was nearly lost to time.
39 year old Adam Nudd-Homeyer is the only man in the world who makes Tappan Chairs.
"We still use machinery from the 1800s. So it's not only the same machine that's been making chairs, you know it's the same pattern running on the same machine doing it exactly the same way."
Abraham Tappan made his first chair in 1819, so the story goes. His son Daniel powered his lathes on the currents of the Cold River.
