This class will be taught by Eric Canniz­zaro and hosted by Greg Penning­ton Windsor Chairs in Hender­son­ville TN. The class covers all the processes and tech­niques needed to make a ladder back chair. We will use a combi­na­tion of hand tool and machine methods, and create the finished surfaces with the drawknife and spoke­shave. We will cover working from the log vs. sawn stock, steam bending, drilling methods, sharp­en­ing, approaches to joinery, and more. Seats will be woven with hickory bark, a tradi­tional ladder back seat mate­r­ial. There wont be time to paint the chairs during class, but we will discuss options for finish­ing at home. This class is open to all skill levels.
