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 will be provided, as well as a muslin slip seat, lacking only the dress fabric of your choosing.
