More Information on this Workshop

Chair making can be an intimidating project to tackle on your own because chairs usually have curved parts and off 90-degree joinery. In this class Adrian will walk students through all the steps needed to create his Fusion Chair. Through demonstrations and making a chair himself, students will see Adrian work at the same time they make their own chair. There will be lots of group demos as well as individual one-on-one time. This is one of Adrian’s more formal chair designs but with a modern flare. What makes this chair unique, and why it’s named Fusion, is that it incorporates veneer work; something not usually considered when designing a chair. Students will learn a multitude of techniques that will give them the confidence to design and make their own chairs back in their own shops. Students will learn pattern shaping parts, double tapered bent lamination, compound joinery (off 90 degrees), form making for bending both with clamps and a vacuum press, bending and veneering a bent panel back splat, and to even make an upholstered seat. The chair will be made of solid walnut (a cut list will be sent so you can bring your own walnut) and the veneer can be of their choice and will be supplied by MASW. This class will be a fantastic opportunity to tackle your first chair or learn new skills if you’ve made chairs in the past.
