Maybe you've built chairs, tables and even a bench. Now what do you do? Its time to build great barstools for your home. And, because they are so often out in the open, its also a great way to show off your craftsmanship. Most homes have counters, a kitchen desk, a breakfast area near the dining room, a big family counter in a great room, or maybe even a full height bar. If you have any of the above and want to seat guests comfortably and elegantly on a great barstool, then this class is for you. Tim has a Greene-and-Greene-influenced backless bar stool in his line of furniture called the Medina Barstool that perfectly fits the bill. Its strong enough for outdoor use in the right wood yet elegant enough to show off indoors in other woods. And, it has lots of great details like cloud lifts and pillowed ebony plugs. With 40 joint parts, angled joinery, a very comfortable seat and a new style of footrest, theres plenty of new challenges for an intermediate to advanced woodworker. In this class students will build two barstools, one to complete in class and one to take home to use as pattern so you can build all you'll need at home. The stool comes in three versions: 24, 27 and 30 heights to fit any counter or bar you may have. Tim will focus on two things: first and foremost, of course, is woodworking - improving your skills by creating robust joinery, especially beefed up mortise-and-tenon joints and second is getting the details right in final construction.
