Chippendale Chair – Hands-on Class
July 29, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm
An event every day that begins at 9:00 am, repeating until August 2, 2019
The ultimate test of your woodworking skills – the Chippendale chair. The angled rear legs and trapezoidal seat come together with compound angled mortise-and-tenon joints. Combine the joinery with a couple of cabriole legs, a curved back splat and a carved crest and you’ve got a woodworking project tour de force.
This chair build includes two cabriole legs with either trifid feet or ball and claw feet, depending on your carving skills. You’ll also choose between a solid or pierced back spat. The crest rail includes carved ears and a scallop shell.
Some of the skills learned in the Chippendale Chair class are:
- Shaping multiple cabriole legs for a project
- Compound angle joinery
- Making a curved back spat
