Dates: April 14, 15, & 16, 2023

Instructor: Rob Spiece

Class Description:  Over the course of three days, we’ll each make two stools.  This project is a great introduction to the round mortise and tenon joinery of Windsor chairmaking and will enable you to boost your accuracy and productivity in your home shop.

The shop made jigs and fixtures used in the making of this piece will show you how to turn a home shop into a small-scale production studio.  Jigs for the tablesaw, bandsaw, router, lathe, and drill press will turn out accurate and reliable joinery.

After the joinery, we’ll look at changing some design elements so you can put your personal stamp on your stools.  We’ll finish up by applying milk paint or a natural finish.
