In this once weekly, four part course, each student will build a post-and-rung stool. Students will learn about splitting logs for stool pieces and we will shape already split stool parts using a shaving horse, drawknife, and spokeshave. Then students use mortise and tenon joinery to assemble their shaped parts into furniture, and explore different weaving patterns with traditional shaker tape (aka cotton webbing) to weave a beautiful pattern for their seat. And of course, we'll sit. As any good chairmaker says, a seat is never finished until you sit on it. No previous experience in woodworking is required to take this class, and experienced woodworkers are welcome too.

*Registering for this class includes access to Open Shop on Tuesday nights during the month of February. Students are welcome to come in and work on their projects, as well as have the option of dyeing their shaker tape during Open Shop.

$50 materials fee (due at first class to Rose. cash, check or credit card)
