AFS: Turning Chair Parts Course

July 22, 2022 @ 9:00 am - July 23, 2022 @ 4:00 pm


From the Adirondack Folk School’s Website: The one element missing from so many chair making classes is the spindle turning skill necessary to make legs, stretchers and arm posts. Join instructor David Abeel to make working on the lathe a new part of your skill set. David will provide cherry, walnut and maple blanks for students to choose from. Turning tools, mark up, head and tail stock considerations, turning a diameter, basic safety considerations, different chair leg styles and sourcing for good turning blanks will all be covered. Class outcome will be 11 turnings: 4 legs, 3 stretchers, 2 arm posts and 2 back posts. Immediately following this class will be a three-day Comb Back Windsor Armchair class where students will find a home for each of their chair parts. All skill levels welcome.
