13th January – “Half Log” Stool Making Course – Aaron Sterritt Woodwork

Come and spend a relaxing day in the workshop creating a piece of handmade furniture. You will learn a wide range of traditional “Green Woodworking” techniques. 

Using hand tools and locally sourced hardwood you will create a rustic 3 or 4 legged “half log stool” for use in the garden or a semi outside environment such as a shed or porch.

This 1 day course is the perfect introduction to “Green Woodworking”. You will start with a log and be shown how to split out the legs, shape and create a tight joint . You then get to choose your seat from a selection of half logs and are shown how to debark, shape, sand and drill the holes for jointing the legs.
