This week we are running a stick chair class for six students with Aspen Golann as the co-instructor. The class was organized by The Chairmaker’s Toolbox, and the students are all teachers or woodworkers who want to become teachers.
The goal is for all of the students to have one stick chair complete by the end of the week – plus a bunch of parts started for their next stick chair.
Lost Art Press readers donated all the money we needed to buy wood and supplies for the class. Plus pastries and hot lunches for the entire week. So thanks again for your help.
Sorry this video is a little short. Tomorrow’s will be longer and better….

Thanks for the video! I’ve been excited about this class starting and hearing about how it’s going. It looks like everyone got a lot done on day one. I, personally, am eagerly anticipating some Cincinnati chili.
at best the manager of skyline brought his wiener dog into the chili plant one day.
well done on the class. the class looks awesome!
I was hoping you would post videos. Looks like a lot got done. Have to get a vicarious pleasure out of your posts, before I embark on a Stick chair, cuz I really want a patch.
That looks like tons of fun.
Great stuff, in so many ways!
First and foremost because it’s happening, to which I take my hat off in reverence and respect!
Also very impressive amount of progress on day one … and then, on a more personal level, the fact that you do this as a series of videos makes it to me a mouthwatering (both woodworking and food wise) sneak preview of Chair Chat Class things to come!
Good on y’all!
You crack me up. Seriously…..I just snarfed my dahl on that last bit. It hurt, but man….so funny.
Mmmm… Skyline. </>
