Make a child’s chair

DAY CLASS

This is a joinery class focusing on the Mortise and Tenon joint. A very traditional method for creating a chair, the M&T joint is one that can be used in many of your home projects so understanding it will be a great asset to building future projects. Whether it’s beds, chairs, doors, cabinets or anything that requires load-bearing strength, the number of glue surfaces and the interlocking nature of the M&T joint will provide a lifetime of quality.

The skills covered in the project class will include marking out techniques and using a variety of power tools to cut and machine the material to the required dimensions. The style of the chair is a miniature dining chair suitable for a small child. It has a wood seat and we would recommend either painting it or applying a varnish on completion. This can be done at home at your leisure.

A terrific gift for a relatively new addition to the family that can be handed down from generation to generation. Hardwood is used in the creation of this chair.

I've been on two courses run by David now and both have been excellent. His knowledge is incredible. He's a talented teacher with a good sense of humour. I would definitely recommend.

Had a great session, David set a good tone/pace for the class. I think it was the minute things that we got shown that really stuck in my head and it has increased my confidence to doing things around the house. Overall, I had an enjoyable learning experience and hope to pop down for another few courses when practical.

I wanted to learn some elementary woodworking skills and took the plunge and booked this class. Our teacher was charming, entertaining and very knowledgeable about the subject matter. Now I cannot stop myself from looking at the grain of wood materials in my daily travels! Good class!
