This is a five day course, making your own spindle-back chair from a log of green ash. You will learn all the processes involved: cleaving the log with a froe, shaping the parts with a draw-knife, steam bending the back legs and back parts, drilling and assembly, and finally weaving the seat with Danish cord or sea grass. You do not need any prior woodworking experience, just a willingness to use your hands and try something new.
