In this 5-session beginner's course, students will develop some fundamental woodworking skills through making a solid wood stool to take home.
As we build our stool, we will cover the following topics, which will give you foundational knowledge and skills to apply to most future projects:
Students may choose the height of their stool based on desired function (e.g., a step stool, child’s stool, plant stand, or computer riser, etc.). Students will use the miter saw to cut their pieces, hand tools and the band saw to cut mortise and tenon joints to connect the legs, glue and clamps to join, and sanding tools to finish our stool.
Appropriate for all skill levels.
Open to students ages 15 and older.
Class takes place at Arbutus Folk School, 610 4th Ave E, Olympia.
All Materials are provided. Students may bring pen and paper to take notes, and any preferred safety equipment (such as glasses or hearing protection) or small tools from home, if desired. Students should wear closed-toed shoes and dress comfortably in layers.
The instructor can either stay later on the final session or can schedule a sixth session the following Thursday evening if anyone needs more time to complete their stools.
Note: Before registering for a series (a course which contains more than one class) students should make sure that individual class dates aren’t in conflict with their schedules because we cannot provide refunds or make-ups. Course payment is for the entire series and not for individual classes within the series. If you do miss a class, let your instructor know, and they will be happy to answer your questions about what you may have missed.
