In this 5 week, 3 hour /session class, you will product a full size Adirondack Chair while learning about the tools and techniques it takes to build one. There will be discussions on Design, Patterns, Tools and Finishing. You will leave with a chair ready to paint and decorate at home. The patterns and knowledge you will have should enable you to make more chairs on your own schedule using affordable hand tools.

Instructor: Mike Dunn
Fee: $275 (members $260) (includes all materials to build basic chair)
