Details

In this ever popular course, you effectively make a three leg chair in a weekend.

Ash legs are split chopped, shaved and turned on the pole lathe. Back sticks in ash are made with hand rounder planes ready for fitting into the hardwood seat. A pre steam bent comb for the back is provided and drilled to take the sticks. We demonstrate the steaming and bending process but it is not practical to do them all in the time available.

The back stool is put together and glued up and cleaned up ready to be taken away.

Price: £130 (includes admission to Tyntesfield, all materials, use of tools and hot drinks)

Over 16s only.
