Mackintosh Chair Copy
12th October 2019 @ 9:00 AM - 13th October 2019 @ 5:00 PM€365
The world-renowned Argyle Chair was designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh in 1897 for tearooms in Glasgow
This two-day course aims to make cabinet making accessible to everybody. If you have already done a course with Bevel Woodworking School it will be an advantage, but it is not a necessity, it’s only necessary that it appeals to you.
The classic Mortice and Tenon joint is the mainstay of this chair and you will be using a morticer to assist you in the assembly. You will also be using the hand plane, block plane, tenon saw, jigsaw, spokeshave, chisels, bobbin sander and more.
You will make your chair from solid Beech specially prepared for this project and you will take home your very own Mackintosh Chair, crafted by you, which will become a family Heirloom
The upholstery and finish will not be included in the two days, but a seat blank is included which you can have upholstered to suit your own decor.
