Nakashima Inspired Chair (3/4/13 – 3/8/13)
In this class we will explore the works of one of my favorite woodworker, George Nakashima. This chair has elegance, simplicity, suttle details and beauty. Don’t let it’s simplicity fool you… This chair requires great skill in precision to execute. It involves carving, sculpting of the seat with various power and hand tools. The complex joinery has to be done accurately to ensure strength and function.
