We will discuss how to choose materials, learn how to rive green wood, drill and ream compound holes, hand carve a pine seat, shape tapered spindles shape and bend a crest. By the end of class we will all have an assembled chair. Painting the chair will be covered so that students can paint their chairs at home.
