Event description

Description

Monday, June 10th 9:00am - 7:00pm & Tuesday, June 11th 9:00am - 5:00pm.

Throughout the course of the 2 day program, you’ll build a rustic table or bench with metal legs out of a piece of slab wood from a tree grown on the Farm. Begin your experience by exploring and learning about the source of your table — the Shelburne Farms forest. Select your wood and learn how to craft it into a personalized table or bench for your home. Lessons will cover hand tools, power tools, and the uses of oil and water-based finishes. Prior woodworking experience is helpful, but not necessary.

Shelburne Farms is home to 400 acres of northern hardwood stands and softwood plantations of pine and spruce. Throughout the year, we cultivate our community knowledge of environmental forestry, including this class designed to give you the chance bring a piece of the Farm home.

This program is created and offered in partnership with The Shelburne Craft School.

Registration is required and includes instruction, materials, lunch and dinner on Monday and lunch on Tuesday.


Optional accommodations at the Inn at Shelburne Farms at a program discount of 30%. Please call 802-985-8498 for reservations.
