In the midst of cleaning out my virtual files, I came across the video below of Peter Follansbee showing how to rive boards out of oak . It’s 114.7 MB for which I don’t have room on my computer, so I’m sharing it here.
I shot it during a 2011 class with Peter on making a joint stool from a tree…coincidentally the title of a Lost Art Press book co-authored by Peter and Jennie Alexander.
Peter is just about done with his initial work on another book, tentatively titled “Joiner’s Work,” on making joined and carved chests (and I’m just about done with its initial edit) – so look for that soonish, likely early 2019, from Lost Art Press.
I have those same exact shorts and sneakers. Please ask Peter where he got his socks.
I have the shirt.
Peter Follansbee’s work is amazing. He has two episodes on the Woodwright’s Shop where he demonstrates making joined chests. It’s also worth exploring his blog:
