Learn traditional wooden joinery and build a stool to take home in this 8 week course!  This is an exciting way to make something beautiful while getting familiar with the hand and power tools at The Shop. In the first four weeks, we'll introduce you to bridal joints, mitres, hand-cut dovetails, and mortise and tenon joints.  Then we'll help you build an elegant stool in cherry, walnut, or maple.  

All materials included.
