Make a Milking Stool course, Worcester, Friday, 04. August 2017

This course is ideal for learners who have previously attended a Touch-Wood"Taster Day", or have sound some woodworking/turning experience.

On the first day learners will cleave fresh green ash wood, and shape it with axes and drawknives to prepare the billets for stool legs; these will then be turned on pole lathes to traditional or original patterns, with plenty of coaching as required. The legs will then be dried ready for assembly on the last day of the course.

On the second day seasoned hardwood boards will be cut to shape using a turning saw, and shaped and finished using a range of hand tools. There are opportunities to explore wood carving within this process.

On the final day the components will be assembled, using traditional Windsor chair making techniques.
