Chair Making - £1195

DURATION: 10 days.
LEVEL: Intermediate *


It is no secret that at The London School of Furniture Making we have a bit of a thing for George Nakashima's work. One of his most enduring designs is the 1960's Conoid Chair. We've made a few attempts at our own version of it and we thought you'd like to make one too.


This course is run over 10 days and ideally suited to those of you who have quite a bit of joinery/furniture making experience and anyone who has completed Basic Skills Joinery and Planing with us in the past. You'll get a chance to improve your hand tool skills as well as get to grips with a range of portable electric power tools. 

Prices for this course fluctuate more than usual due to the rising cost of American black walnut. 

* Intermediate level courses are best suited to those of you who have already completed one of our Basic Skills Joinery courses, or have a good understanding of hand cut joinery. If the words 'face side and face edge' mean nothing to you, then this course is a little above your current ability.
