Joseph Jude Brien circa 2017

Build your very own stool using vintage hand tools in this exciting one-day workshop. Students rotate through a series of work stations called shaving horses as they learn how to hand craft a stool to take home. 


Each participant is provided with a seat blank made of eastern white pine and an assortment of kiln-dried hardwood branches. Hand tools are used to shape parts so they can be securely joined using wedges and glue - the same way they did it

”in the old days”. This program is great for parent/child pairs to do together.


All materials and tools are provided.


School Programs can accommodate larger classes, working in teams to craft a number of stools which remain in the classroom.
