Woodworking & Furniturecraft

Traditional Furniture Building with Hand-tools, Spring Pole & Electric Lathes

Course Overview

If the desire to build beautiful, functional furniture has ever struck you, this course is the place to begin. Over four and a half days, you’ll explore the primary techniques of traditional woodworking and furniture-craft. You’ll begin with a classic Americana piece, the 3 legged stool, using vintage fine woodworking tools to shape birch and white pine. The second project, a Windsor stool, will utilize both spring-pole lathes & electric lathes, and will provide an in-depth introduction to Windsor-style furniture-craft. Finishes such as milk paints and traditional wood preservatives will be discussed. This extended course format allows ample time for conversation and discussion of furniture design, tradition and function.
