You will use seasoned wood to make your chair which reduces the wood drying problems of wood warping once it is taken home to a heated environment. What you will learn During the five days, you will cover a whole range of woodworking skills. You will look at wood selection, shaping and turning of the legs, cutting and shaping of the seat, setting up and steam bending the bows. From there you will assemble all the components together to construct and complete your Windsor chair. As well as covering a range of skills, you will practice the use of a wide range of modern and traditional tool and techniques. These include traditional tool shaping adzes and spokeshaves through to modern power tools like the Arbortech carving range.
