Wear comfortable cloths, but be prepared for anything, this is Texas. There is no cooling, besides fans, in my shop.
Robert's FOUR DAY SEMINAR is an intense, comprehensive demonstration of the techniques needed and used in the
construction of a rocking chair. In this four day class, Robert will build a complete rocking chair, from start
to finish. You will learn how to shape the various
parts of the rocker using the band saw, assorted
carbide tools, and sanding drums, and how to
join those parts together. You will learn all the tips and procedures that go
with the making of this style of chair. You will learn in four days, what took Robert many years to perfect.
The seminar not only teaches you a lot about joinery, shaping, glue-up, etc, but is also a basic 4 day seminar on how to work mesquite, whether it's a rocker or not. What I can pass on to the class is my 28 years of experience, working primarily with mesquite. You learn how to get the most from any given board, how to epoxy, bandsaw, shape with several different grinders, and so forth.
The tuition for the 4 day seminar is $1,100.00 and includes handouts, and a set of rocking chair plans. Refreshments
are included, but lodging and meals will be up to you. You may also Email
Robert with any seminar questions. Uvalde Area Motels:
