Keep it Together: Joinery for Furniture

Weeklong - August 21-25, Touchstone Center for Crafts

Construct a small piece of forge steel furniture using traditional joinery, including rivets, mortises and tenons, and forge welding. You will also make some tooling for punching holes and forging tenons, then execute the same basic design while being given plenty of opportunities and ideas for individual embellishments that will make each piece unique. You will leave with a finished piece of furniture to grace your home.

Skill Level: Beginner - Intermediate *Some forging experience is required.
