Woodworking Workshop Wednesday – Project #3: the Walnut Shaker Foot Stool.

This was a small project, compare to the last 2 (Chair & Table) but intense as it was 2 full days and a lot more precise with less room for errors.

The masterpiece,
The signature of the masterpiece
The details: the planned and unplanned ones,
And as usual the picture of all involved even thought it was mainly Liuyang and I.

And sometimes you hit the mallet a bit too strong and it slips the wood. Oops! Well when you have a very skilled teacher, he repaired that in a pinch and it actually gives your stool a little Je Ne Sais Quoi 😉

PS: I was his last student as he decided to concentrate on his own business (making high-end wooden furniture fully by hand, no machinery) after this class… but it wasn’t my fault, it was a planned departure!!

And miracle it all fits in.
Might have had just a tiny bit of help by an extremely patient teacher.

Using machinery and hand tools.

Woodworking Workshop Wednesday – Project #3

They were teaching another class with different skills and I somehow got sucked into it.
This one requires precision (more then sweat)… tapping into my forte (NOT!)
