Build a Modern Windsor Rocking Chair with Chairmaker Luke A. Barnett. Students will join us for a 1 week class. We will start with logs on Monday morning and finish with a rocking chair on Friday. Students will learn how to obtain and choose the ideal logs for a chair. Student will learn how to rive the logs to get perfect straight grained lumber. We will steam bend the spindles, back posts, and crest. We will learn how to build a kiln and control the moisture content in the wood to get the best out of it. We will sculpt the arms and carve the seat. This is a hand tool intensive class.
