Family Vacation–Owl Style

Posted on: July 24th, 2013 by Geoffrey Warner No Comments

Family Vacation–Owl Style.  Summer is filled with adventures and this month, families from Massachusetts & Virgina spent a day with Geoff building Owl Stools at the Geoffrey Warner Studio in Stonington, Maine.

In the Owl Stool Workshop, Geoff taught the families how to attach the legs with all-wooden joinery, trim the front legs to create the stool’s ergonomic tilt, and carefully sand the walnut or cherry seats and ash legs. The workshop ends with everyone applying the first coat of natural tung oil on their new Owl Stools–and watching the beautiful wood grain pop out!  A day of laughter and learning created great memories for all.

Next workshop with availability is Wednesday, August 21st or groups of 4 or more may arrange a private date.
