It is no secret that here at the LSF we have a bit of a thing for American architect and maker George Nakashima. One of his most enduring designs is the 1960s Conoid cantilevered Chair which is still in production to this day. It was shockingly modern for the time and yet it still has a strong craft sensibility. We’ve made a few attempts at our own version of it and we thought you’d like to make one too.
This course is our most demanding class; ideally suited to those with quite a bit of joinery/furniture-making experience and anyone who has completed Core Skills: Joinery 1. You’ll be working in the main, with hand tools but also make use of a number of power tools including routers.
If you are a little daunted by going straight into making the chair, be sure to take a look at the Japanese Coffee Table course.
