Wharton Esherick Stool
Wharton Esherick is one of the most influential woodworkers of the last century. In this class you’ll recreate Esherick’s 1929 stool with sculpted mortise-and-tenon joinery. Or get creative and adapt the design to your own taste.

- Matching figure in wood to provide the best possible look for your project
