On 18th and 19th May, Greenwood Days are hosting a workshop to enable you to make your own greenwood stool on a traditional pole lathe!
They will start with the growing tree, learning how to select the best wood, looking at how it’s grown and what would be best for each stool. You’ll learn how to cleave, axe, drawknife on a shaving horse and turn the freshly felled wood on the pole lathe. You’ll dish a stool top using traditional travishers, finishing with a great stool to take home.
