Staked Stool with Derek Jones

Staked Stool with Derek Jones

Next course: 2025 dates TBC.
This three day course takes you through completing a three-legged stool. Using through-tenoned construction (now known as “staked”construction) is a skill worth learning for any furniture maker. Three legs instead of four means the stool will never wobble, no matter what floor it’s sitting on, the mortise layout is simple, and, of course, there’s one less leg to make!
Cost: £295. Tutor: Derek Jones.
