This class will focus on the fan back side chair. The elegance, comfort and lightness of this chair have kept it in continuous production for over 200 years. Students will build their chair starting from green wood to assembly in six days. Peter will cover topics including sharpening, wood technology and design that will enhance students' ability to go forth and make chairs at home. Peter will demystify the angles and curves that go into making a successful chair while demonstrating how hand tools are the most effective way to build an heirloom chair. Turnings will be provided, although plans are available for experienced turners to provide their own. Turning demonstrations and processes will be covered in detail. Be ready to work hard and learn a whole new way of woodworking.
