Stool making for beginners course

Sep 15, 2024 10:00

Use your green woodworking skills to create a beautiful piece of handmade furniture over two days


Create a beautiful piece of handmade furniture over two days. By building on the beginner’s techniques learnt in the one-day Introduction to Green Woodworking course, you can craft a bespoke item of furniture for your home.

Please ensure you have already completed, or are booked to attend the introductory course before taking part in this one.

Because of the drying time needed for the stool legs, the two-day course is split over different weekends. We prefer the stool legs to dry naturally, without the use of a kiln. Please note Day 1 of this course is Sunday 15th September 2024. Day 2 of this course is Saturday 5th October 2024. This purchase covers payment for both sessions.

The course includes:

– A refresher on the properties and handling of green wood

– Getting familiar with green woodworking tools including a pole lathe and draw knife

– Creating your own stool using a mix of green wood and hardwood, which you can then take home to be admired and used by friends and family

Day 1 – create the legs for your stool

Day 2 – create the seat and assemble the stool

All tools are supplied by the instructor.
