Tool List: Click here for tool list
This is an opportunity to work with two individuals who are masters in their respective fields: Michael Fortune and Alan Lacer. In this weekend course participants will construct all the necessary parts to assemble a curved-back stool. The class will be divided each day, with half the class turning the legs and stretchers with Alan while the other half works with Michael to form the back and bracket pieces. The class is open to any level of woodworking skill but it is highly desirable to have some spindle-turning experience. This is an opportunity of a lifetime to spend a weekend with the two most popular instructors at the school--twisted, bent, and turned and sometimes a little warped.
