Intro to Carpentry: Collapsible Chair


  • ReBuilding Center ReFind Woodshop 3625 North Mississippi Avenue (map)

NOTE: This class meets once a week for two weeks, with the same start and end times.

Learn how to accurately cut, assemble, and finish raw lumber to make this collapsible chair. Top and bottom sections nest for easy storage, or slide together to make a quick and comfortable chair when you need it.

Make an awesome chair while taking your woodworking skills to a whole new level! (Not to mention impressing your friends and family. You might be able to barter chairs for new tools - just sayin'!)

Topics covered:
* safe and accurate cuts on bandsaw, scrollsaw, tablesaw, and chopsaw
* drillpress and power drills
