Introduction to Green Wood Furniture Making

180.00

A two day course learning the skills and techniques of green woodworking, with an emphasis on contemporary design and detailing. Maximum of 8 students.

You will make either a low stool or a side table using a variety of edge tools. Starting with a fresh cut log you will learn how to cleave the wood with a froe and wedges, then shape it on the shave horse with drawknife and spokeshave. Joints used will be through-wedged-tenons. Use of contrasting timbers, and sculpted free-form table tops or seats are all available options, depending on your skill level and confidence. All timber supplied on this course is locally sourced. This course is suitable for beginners and intermediate learners of green woodwork.  The next available course is in January 2018, in my wonderful heated workshop near the sea.    Click here for some options of places to stay locally.  Click here to see reviews of this course.
