All things Woodworking...

Build a Campaign Chair with Christopher Schwarz

Finally arrived in the UK,
……just in time for Christmas 2016!

Build a portable chair that will be passed down as a family heirloom with Christopher Schwarz. Designed in the 19th Century, this chair collapses to a small bundle (like the inexpensive football chair in your boot) but it is both durable and beautiful enough to fit in with your living room furniture. You’ll learn:

  • Basic turning techniques – the simple steps to create the legs for chair
  • Simple, modern hardware options for this 19th-century project
  • How to select and work leather (even if you are new to it) using tools familiar to any woodworker
  • How to add buckles and rivets to bring all the pieces together
  • And more!
