Build a Mid-Century Lounge Chair with Philip Morley
Grow your woodworking skills and furnish your home with a sleek and contemporary Morley lounge chair.
Building this chair is an excellent way to develop your woodworking skills and will make a statement in your home. Designed by your instructor, Philip Morley, this mid-century lounge chair has flair but is supremely comfortable. You’ll learn about traditional joinery, careful craft, and unique design touches.
This class build will help you focus on precise layout, careful measurement, and the use of templates for pattern routing.
Key learning points:
- Making bridle joints and mortise & tenons
- Proper handtool use
- Using templates and jigs for pattern routing
- Power tool techniques such as coping on the table saw
- Design elements such as decorative veneered panels
Materials: Provided by the School. We will also offer some wood species choices, but if you have a “stash,” you may want to consider bringing something unique for the panels.
There are several long days in this class. Come prepared to work hard 🙂💪
