Mid-Century Modern Lounge Chair

Chairs can be some of the trickiest projects to build. The construction of this lounge chair is fairly straight forward, but there’s plenty to test the skills of any level woodworker. You’ll spend the first part of the week working out the design and making the frames that make up this chair.

Some of the skills learned in the Mid-Century Modern Lounge Chair class are:

  • How to make and fit mortise-and-tenon joints
  • Fitting sculpted furniture parts
  • Working with hand and power tools for accurate fit

Materials are not included in the class fee. Lumber for this project may be purchased through us or on your own and shipped to our shop at least four weeks prior to the class.

Each student should supply his, or her, own:

  • Safety glasses and hearing protection

  • Bevel gauge
  • Bench chisels
  • Carvers mallet

  • Smooth plane or jack plane

If you do not have the tools on the list, don’t panic, there are plenty of tools for your use in class.
