This course offers participants the chance to build one of David‘s iconic designs, the elegant, practical and very comfortable Hoop- stool. Students will have two full weeks of immersion in an unusual woodworking project that is both fun to make and a pleasure to take home.
The stool building involves several of the key wood-bending techniques, including steam-bending, as well as kerf-bending and laminating. This project lends itself to some individual design aesthetic with the selection of timber and hand shaping of the legs and handles.
