Make a Rustic 3 legged Stool.
What is Green Wood? Green Wood is freshly felled, still sappy wood. To work it requires a set of simple techniques based on an understanding of how wood reacts - both to the tools, and to the drying and shrinking process. Because it is green, the wood is soft and easy to work with hand tools, and because of this, green woodwork creates little waste, and can utilise small trees and logs. It is therefore green in all senses of the word.
Rustic stools are made from cleft timber which is split with a froe and then worked up and shaped with an axe and a drawknife. You will learn how to use a shavehorse, create mortice and tenons with traditional hand tools and how to fit a wedge to secure the legs. This makes a very simple stool, and is a great course that anyone can do - no experience needed.
