Turning a Stool with Doug Forsha

August, 8 from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM


[ngg src=”galleries” ids=”11″ display=”basic_thumbnail”]

Turning a Stool is one of our most gratifying workshops, combining turning and furniture-building into a fast project that results in an elegant three-legged stool. In just one day, you’ll turn the seat and legs and then fully assemble an attractive walnut stool that makes a great gift or can be put to work anywhere you might want an extra seat. With expert instruction from Master Craftsman Doug Forsha, you’ll be able to customize the contours of the seat and legs and will even have time to apply a coat of finish.

You will learn:

    •  How to turn the legs and the seat on the lathe 
    •  How to use jigs to efficiently cut the tenons on the lathe and drill the mortises in the seat.  
    •  How to assemble the stool and apply the finish

Tools required: All tools and materials supplied by the school. Please bring ear and eye protection and a safety mask.

Class size: Maximum 8.
