Build a Campaign Chair with Christopher Schwarz
Ref: DVD-CS-BACC


Build a portable chair that will be passed down as a family heirloom!

Designed in the 19th century, this chair collapses to a small bundle (like the inexpensive soccer chair in your trunk), but is both durable and beautiful enough to fit in with your living room furniture.

You'll learn:

  • Basic turning techniques - the simple steps to create the legs for the chair.
  • Simple, modern hardware options for this 19th-century project.
  • How to select and work leather (even if you are new to it), using tools familiar to any woodworker.
  • How to add buckles and rivets to bring all the pieces together.
  • And more!

173 Minutes, DVD. F&W Media Inc., 2015.
