Six Board Chest w/Christopher Schwarz
By all rights, six-board chests shouldn't survive the travails of wood movement – yet thousands have. No two six-board chests are exactly alike, yet they all look cut from the same cloth. And how do nails help this humble but noble form of furniture survive the centuries?
You'll learn all this – and more – as our most hirsute instructor at the Woodwright's School leads you on a journey of discovery through the construction of this sometimes inscrutable form. You'll begin the class with two boards, a handful of tools and a deadline. A steady saw, a hungry chisel and a ferocious hammer will guide you as you construct the chestiest of all the traditional American furniture forms – the six-board chest.
