    Create a beautiful piece of handmade furniture over two days. By building on the beginner’s techniques learnt in the one-day Introduction to Green Woodworking course, you can craft a bespoke item of furniture for your home. Please ensure you have already completed, or are booked to attend the introductory course before taking part in this one. Because of the drying time needed for the stool legs, the two-day course is split over different weekends. We prefer the stool legs to dry naturally, without the use of a kiln. Please select and book your preferred Day 1 of the course, and then contact us via email to book onto one of the Day 2 sessions – these are scheduled for 12th November and 3rd December. The course includes: – A refresher on the properties and handling of green wood – Getting familiar with woodworking tools including a pole lathe and draw knife – Create and take home your own stool using a mix of green wood and hardwood Day 1 – create the legs for your stool
