Build a Windsor Balloon Back Side Chair with Chairmaker Luke A. Barnett. Students will join us for a 5 day class. We will start with logs on Monday morning and finish with a balloon back side chair on Friday. Students will learn how to obtain and choose the ideal logs for a chair. Student will learn how to rive the logs to get perfect straight grained lumber. We will steam bend the balloon back. We will learn how to build a kiln and control the moisture content in the wood to get the best out of it. We will sculpt the spindles and carve the seat. This is a hand tool intensive class. There will likely be additional hours needed during this class, expect to work late some days.
