Staked Stool with Chris Schwarz

Introduction to Staked Furniture

Learn the essential skills to design and build staked furniture – anything from a sawbench to a desk to an armchair. In this weekend class, each student will design a small footstool with a half-scale model made of wire and wood. Then they’ll build that project in class using staked furniture techniques.

Students will learn:

  • To execute compound-angle joinery without math (or numbers)
  • To shape legs by hand and machine
  • To join legs and seats using both tapered and cylindrical mortise-and-tenon joints
  • To add stretchers between legs
  • How to properly wedge joints for a long-lasting joint
  • To level the legs so they all touch the floor at the same time.
