Period Joinery Construction Classes
Building a Chippendale Side Chair
May 14 - 18, 2017
During this week long class we will be using both hand tools and modern machinery to produce a Tidewater Virginia/North Carolina side chair. The joinery is the same as it's more embellished cousin. We will cover most aspects of joinery needed to build this chair. After a full week of period furniture construction techniques you will be able to take this chair home for completion. We will send you home with the understanding of how a chair like this is made to fill out a set in the future. This should end up being a family heirloom to be handed down thru generations to come.
Cost for this class is $1250 Lunch is included A tool list and cut list will be provided
