Build an Arts & Crafts Rocking Chair with Mike Pekovich

Pekovich rocker silo 640Learn the basics of chair making and more while building a classic Arts and Crafts rocker. In this six-day class we'll cover bent lamination techniques, angled tenon joinery and cutting tenons on curved parts, while making a rocking chair guaranteed to be the most comfortable chair in your house. Fine Woodworking magazine executive art director, Mike Pekovich, will show you his method for breaking down a complex project into simple steps that you can put to use on any project. The class is also a great lesson in building an original piece using craftsman details for an authentic Arts & Crafts look. We anticipate that participants will have most of the chair completed by the end of the class but do not be surprised if you still have some minor “finishing up” work to complete in your own shops. As a special bonus we have arranged a follow up class with well-known upholsterer and CVSW instructor Mike Mascelli. In that Saturday class participants will make the cushion necessary to complete the chair. The upholstery is, of course, something that you can also do on your own or with an upholsterer of your own choosing. check here for details: Mike Mascelli rocker slip seat 640Pekovich rocker arm 2 640
