Make your own traditional four-legged stool, assembling the components with mortise and tenon jointwork and fitting a solid wood seat. You'll also experience cleaving then shaping timber with a drawknife to gain an appreciation of ancient timber-working practices.


Mervyn Mewis

Mervyn Mewis has been involved in woodlands and small scale production of furniture for over twenty years; following on from a combination of landscape conservation studies at Merrist Wood College (Surrey) and Birkbeck University (London) and with City and Guilds traditional carpentry training. Bringing these interests together in the form of traditional green (unseasoned) woodwork techniques, combining historic methods of working with modern design and function have led to nearly ten years of teaching and helping others to understand and learn these skills.
