I’m excited to be teaching this class again. It’s the kind of woodworking I love best, and I love getting to share it. And I’m especially excited to be teaching with Eric Cannizzaro again – he’s an excellent chairmaker, a good teacher and a really nice guy. I’ve never been to his shop before, but he’s spent the last couple years improving it and it sounds really nice. Here’s the class description:
Spend a week working wood as nature intended. We’ll begin with a walk in the woods and learn how to identify several useful tree species and how to pick a good tree for green woodworking projects. Then we will return to the shop to split and rive parts from an ash log to start our first project. A variety of projects will teach us how to exploit wood’s strengths and weaknesses for our benefit. Emphasis will be placed on learning fundamentals that can be applied to a variety of projects, green or dry. Projects options include spoons, pitch forks, brooms, firewood carriers, tool handles, fan birds sharpening and other projects useful and otherwise. A pole lathe will be on hand for fun and turning.
The class takes place at Eric Cannizzaro’s shop in Charlotte, Vermont. The class is open to 8 students. We will also offer a work-study position to someone for whom money is a barrier.
