Want to learn how to build an attractive chair for your garden? Not sure you have a large enough workshop or the right tools to do so? Discover how easy it is to produce your own chair using the Veritas Adirondack chair plan. With guidance from your tutor you will build your own attractive chair to enjoy in your garden or to give as a great gift!
Using Scandinavian pine, you will spend your two days building your beautiful and very comfortable chair. The course will cover a wide range of techniques, with opportunities to use a router and router table. You will also use a range of hand tools, including spokeshaves, bench planes and everything else you need to build your chair.
By the end of the two days, you will have a finished article that you can take home to impress your family and friends with.
Items you take home can change depending on the resources and materials available on the day.
You will start your day with a welcome talk, including a hot drink, health and safety brief and a breakdown and review of the equipment you will be using.
This is a 'hands-on' course, each student being able to work at their own pace. The tutor will be able to demonstrate and explain the techniques to the group as a whole and individuals as required.
The minimum age is 14 years old and anyone under 16 must be accompanied by an adult for the duration of the course and must not be left unattended during class hours. If you would like to read our terms and conditions click here.
A most enriching experience!
I spent a fabulous week at the Axminster Tools training centre making a Windsor chair, although I am a keen woodworker, I learnt so much more on this course and was able to use tools of the highest quality and have tuition in their use. The tutors were excellent and extremely patient and helpful, not at all like being in an educational situation. I can highly recommend this course and the education centre, a most enriching experience.Roger T, Windsor Chair Course
Very pleased with the day
Attended this sharpening course with five other students! All had various tools to sharpen. Jason provided excellent tuition. Gave tuition on the various ways to sharpen tools. Lots of tips and tricks to obtain a sharp edge. Came away with my tools well sharpened. Very pleased with the day. Thanks to the Skill Centre staff for looking after us.Harold R, Tool Sharpening Training
