Woodworking & Furniturecraft

Three-Legged Milking Stool

Course Overview

Explore the fundamentals of traditional furniture making with this classic Americana piece, the three-legged milking stool. Steeped in the tradition of working exclusively with vintage fine woodworking tools, you'll learn precise handwork to shave wooden birch legs using a drawknife on the traditional woodworker's 'bench' of choice, the shaving horse. The finer details will be smoothed with a spokeshave and the seats sculpted of white pine. You'll learn to mortise and tenon the legs to the seat with a hand tenoner. Finishes such as milk paints and other traditional wood preservatives will be discussed, allowing you the most fashionable chair for sitting upon whilst hand milking your cow or goat…or whittling on your next project.
