Carved Footstool

There isn’t a project much better than a stool to cover lots of hand woodworking skills, from basic joinery to carving.
Carved Footstool

There isn’t a project much better than a stool to cover lots of hand woodworking skills, from basic joinery to carving. Without dedicating lots of material this week-long class packs a lot into a manageable sized piece that will fit into a suitcase, the final glue-up to be done when you get home. Approx. Size: 18”h x 14”x 20”

Based on a Philadelphia model of about 1780, this walnut stool has shaped skirts and ball and claw feet, as well as shells on the long skirts and knees. All materials, including a drawing, will be provided except the seat frame.

Helpful but not required: “How to Use Carving Tools” Class, or any ball and claw class.
