About the event

Post and Rung Stool Making (*Every Monday evening in March, 3 hours each )

Tuition: $200, Materials: $50

Course Description: In this two day course each student will build a post-and-rung stool out of sustainably harvested Oregon White Oak. On the first day, students learn about splitting logs for stool pieces and we will shape already split stool parts using a shaving horse, drawknife, and spokeshave. On the second day, 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. Instructor:  Rose Holdorf
