Have A Seat! Stool Workshop

April 5, 2018 – April 8, 2018

Bill Wallace

During this workshop students will have several design options available to make their own stools. They include a tapered wedged mortise and tenon joint to attach the legs to the seat, and a tapered tenon will be turned on the lathe. Participants can build their stool legs by turning on a shave horse using a draw knife, spoke shave or hand planes. You can construct the seat by turning or in free form. Prior turning experience is helpful but not necessary. Open to all skill levels.


Bill Wallace is a full-time woodworker and teacher. His shop is located outside of Wake Forest, North Carolina. He and his brother started turning classes at Alamance Community College in 1981 and at North Carolina State University in 1986 and he continues to teach at both locations. Wallace has assisted Bob Lockhart in the stone carving class at Arrowmont for the last several years. Recently, he was recognized at the Raleigh Environmental Awards for a decade of craftsmanship and for demonstrating environmental stewardship.
