We will cut some coppice hazel and silver birch from our woods and then select the pieces we want to use for the back legs, the front legs and the rails. We will cut them to length and turn tenons on the rails, drill the mortices in the legs and assemble the chairs.
The wood can be left with the bark on or with the bark removed. The parts can be left as they were when harvested or shaped with a draw-knife.
The seats can made from solid wood or left to be given a woven seat.
