Finally, they will try out some finishing techniques before choosing one for their box.
The Tutor - Phil Lyons;
Phil has always been inclined toward woodwork and hand skills. He graduated from Bucks New University over ten years ago and since that time he has started and successfully built a furniture restoration business. During that time he has made a concerted effort to study all the different ways that furniture is made. Some of his specialties are frame and chair construction, marquetry, gilding, among other areas. He has designed a series of courses which together will teach students most aspects of furniture making. All of this will be in context of making several beautiful objects including a small box, a windsor chair.
