Event Description

 Green woodworking is a traditional skill that is all but lost except for a few fine woodworkers like Dan Stalzer. Green woodworking describes the process of working wood before it is "seasoned" or dried. Most modern mills dry the wood as part of the production process. However, unseasoned wood is softer and therefore easier to work with, so woodworking can be done completely by hand tools. The project parts are made of green wood and then are allowed to properly dry before assembling and completing the project.

Dan Stalzer will demonstrate traditional green woodworking by making Appalachian style ladderback chairs. He will begin by demonstrating how he splits logs into smaller pieces in sizes for the chair pieces. Then he will show how he carves the chair pieces. He uses mostly Tanoak, which is strong, beautiful, plentiful, and not used commercially for lumber. At his demonstration, he will split a fresh log into work pieces and shave them into chair parts.

This event is free to our museum visitors. No advance registration needed.
