Green Wood Stool Making
November 5th and 6th, 2022
An introduction to post and rung, green wood joinery with decorated Eastern Kentucky chairmaker Terry Ratliff.
Students will construct a handy stool employing timeless chair making joinery techniques that will need no glue screws or metal fasteners. The woven hickory bark for the seating will be on hand and students will learn about tree selection and harvesting technique. Weaving of the subtle leather like material for a durable and lasting seat will be a final step in creation of this heirloom quality foot stool.
