Finishing Your #1 Chair with Michael Fortune October 10-14, 2022
Now the that you’ve done Number One it’s time for Number Two…. Uh, maybe not the best first sentence… Making the #1 chair often required learning a lot of new woodworking skills, like assembling complex curved shapes and sculpting the joints. Even holding the curved parts while shaping them could be challenging. Perhaps you’d like to complete a set of dining chairs, but are missing some of the jigs, patterns or a bent back slat or two. Michael will start the class with identifying the personal tasks for each student and help them formulate a plan to complete the chair and replace any missing parts in the class. All the jigs, patterns, special clamps and clamping cauls will be available during the week. Michael will also go through upholstering the seat, if that is your missing link in finishing the chair. Come and join the group with your partially finished chair, or even a bag of parts, that will morph into the #1 chair.
