Fall Seminar 2019

This year our presenter will be Christopher Schwarz, furniture maker, teacher and one of the founders of the Lost Art Press, and publisher of hand tool woodworking books.

If chairmaking intimidates you, you aren't alone. The tools, materials and processes seem to require a pledge of allegiance to an entirely different craft that uses green wood, shavehorses and steamboxes. It doesn't have to be that way.

For the last two decades, Chris has dedicated himself to learning all modes of chairmaking, from building them with green wood and traditional tools to making chairs with routers, high-tech compression wood and complex jigs. The chair for this lecture uses a mix of tools that you probably already own (plus a few new ones), wood that you have in your scrap bin and skills you have already honed.
