This week, Highland Woodworking is hosting master chairmaker, Peter Galbert, who is teaching a 7-day class entitled Build a Continuous Arm Windsor Chair from March 3-9.

After Day 1, students have already made progress on building their own chairs, which they will get to take home at the end of the week:
