Wood as created by nature is a wonderful material for unusual pieces of furniture and objects. In this course you will learn how to create a piece of rustic wood furniture with parts of solid wood, using tools ranging from a traditional drawknife to hand power routers (working with grinding and rasp blades). The smooth solid wood parts contrast beautifully with the wild-grown hazelnut branches used for the chair legs and stabilisers and provide a comfortable seat and back. The seat can be planed flat or machined with a recess.
  • Joining the natural wood parts with mortise and tenon
  • Fastening the solid wood parts with wooden nails
  • Do the branches need to be pared and if so, what techniques are there?
  • Surface treatment of the finished pieces of furniture with oils and waxes
