Build a staked high stool with Chris Schwarz
Building this staked high stool is an excellent introduction to chairmaking. In this three day class you will learn to calculate and drill compound-angle joints without trigonometry (or even numbers). You will learn to create a tapered mortise-and-tenon joint – the foundation of Windsor chairmaking. And you will learn to create the stout undercarriage that allows this delicate stool to support an impressive weight.
Students will finish their assembled stools with “shou sugi ban,” shellac or a number of organic hand-applied finishes.
The only prerequisite for this class is you are confident in your sharpening skills.
The class will be held at London Design & Engineering UTC which is in close proximity to London City Airport with excellent transport links into the city and beyond.
