Build an Art & Crafts Style Side Chair with Mike Pekovich

Pekovich arts and crafts side chair 2019 640With its angled seat frame, curved parts and minimal joinery, building a chair can be an intimidating proposition. In this two-weekend class, Fine Woodworking Magazine’s Creative Director and nationally known furniture maker Mike Pekovich will introduce you to the techniques & skills used in building an Arts & Crafts-inspired side chair. Utilizing the concept of the “master angle”, you will learn how simple it actually is to create accurate angled joinery. Cutting smooth and “fair” curves is easily accomplished with the use of a simple bandsaw jig and accurate well-fitting mortise & tenon joints will be stressed as they are essential to any well-built chair. Along the way you'll also learn how to update a classic style by adding simple details. The slip seat frame will be made in class and arrangements are being made with well-known upholster Mike Mascelli, to have a one-day class to complete the upholstered slip seat.

Finishing is not a part of the class, but it will certainly be discussed and demonstrated. Sign up today. Space is limited. Tuition: $595.00 plus materials
