Build the Westport Chair with Larry Benjamin. #1136-0714. 4 days.

July 17 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

We all ponder which came first…the chicken or the egg. But have you ever wondered which came first…the Adirondack chair or the Westport chair? Learn the answer to this and the history of friendship and perhaps betrayal, all while building your own Westport chair. Your chair will be a family heirloom. It will last for many, many years and in building it you will learn many valuable skills, like how to cut angles and edges and using hand tools from a past era. No woodworking experience is required. Come join the fun and learn something new.
