All Levels
June 10 - June 14, 2024

Chair Making

In this workshop, we’ll learn the basics of woodworking through the making of a simple chair. We’ll learn to mill and shape lumber, work from templates, and join wood together with mortise and tenon joints. We’ll also discuss different finishing techniques, so that each student can make this chair their own.

Materials Fees for this workshop are estimated to be between $85-110. This does not include materials that may need to be purchased by the student prior to the workshop. Additional wood will be available for purchase by the board foot.
