Craftsman-Style Rocking Chair (6-day)

craftsmanrocker

6 day class

Completing even a simple chair often involves the use of layout methods and construction techniques that most furniture workshops no longer practice. Working through each stage of this craftsman-style rocking chair will help students gain new levels of confidence as they complete this challenging and complex project. At the end of the class, each student will leave with a finished rocking chair of heirloom quality that can be passed down from generation to generation, as well as the skills needed to build more chairs at home, including dining room chairs.

As with all our courses, we emphasize the important elements of traditional hand-tool use through teacher demonstrations and practical hands-on instruction throughout each day. In addition to reinforcing the skills already taught through the Foundational Joinery Course, you will also learn other skills such as how to lay out and cut angled tenons and apply leather upholstery for the seat. In this class, we make this chair in cherry. If you would like to make it in walnut, it will be an additional $160.00.

This class is from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
NOTE: This class will close 1 week prior to the start date of the class.

For classes costing $1,000.00 or more, fifty percent of the registration fee is due when you register, and the remaining balance is due 30 days prior to your class date and will be charged to the same card you used to register for this class.

After you add the class to your shopping cart, you will automatically be charged the full amount of the class unless you put in the COUPON code of  WOODCLASS. (This code is case sensitive. Feel free to cut and paste it in the coupon code area if you’d like.)

Note: Since our workshops are specifically designed for adults, an individual must be 18 years old to enroll in a class. All students should wear practical work clothes and shoes. For your safety, we ask that you do not wear shorts or sandals to a class you are attending.
