Wood Workshop: Log to Stool

Enjoy making your own wood project in this class.

7 hours Class size 2 to 8     label £79
Learn the basics of woodworking and make your very own three-legged stool. It's a great way to start your journey into wood crafts and will inspire you to come up with more woodworking ideas.
Your friendly and experienced teacher will guide you through every step of making a rustic stool, starting with a log. You will cover wood trimming and cleaving as well as how to shave on a shave horse.
This woodworking class will also show you how to form tenons with a tenon cutter and drawknife, how to shape a slab into a seat, how to drill out the leg holes with a hand auger and then how to assemble the stool. Health and safety talks will be included, so you know how to handle everything with care.
It makes for an amazing piece of DIY home decor, and you will be so proud to be able to say you made it yourself.
There will be a quick break for lunch and plenty of breaks, with tea and coffee provided. We recommend you arrive about thirty minutes before the class starts to ensure everything runs smoothly.

Your teacher

Ged has been a Countryside ranger for Moray Council for 20 years. He studied forestry at Bangor University and not surprisingly he enjoys being outdoors with nature. Ged first got into green woodworking by renovating his house and garden. He built his own bespoke kitchen from wood and taught himself as he went. He enjoyed it so much he decided he'd like to teach others how to craft beautiful items from natural resources.
So what is greenwood? Ged takes freshly cut, unseasoned timber – the likes of which can end up on our winter open fires – and converts this timber into unique, functional products. To do this he uses traditional methods and tools, harking back to bye-gone days before highly mechanised machinery, for truly handcrafted and individual items.
He's a very calm and encouraging teacher and is interested in conservation, environmental issues, yoga and northern soul!
