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 5:30 p.m.
Prerequisite: Six-Day Foundational Joinery Course
NOTE: This class will close 1 week prior to the start date of the class.
