Atlantic Ribbon Stool

Course Description

Learn to make the Atlantic Ribbon Stool over 3 days in the convivial atmosphere and spacious workshop at the Atlantic Makers Collective.

The stool is made using traditional wedge tenon joints, and spokeshaving to shape the legs and top. We then steam bend the lower rail and fix it in place using wooden pegs and wedges, carefully shaped using a variety of hand planes and chisels. You will be using hand tools throughout, with some use of the pillar drill.

The result is a unique stool which doubles as a small coffee table.  However you decide to use it, it’ll be a piece of furniture you can take pride in for decades to come!
