Making a Ruobo Bookstand - with Dave Fleming

Date: August 9, 2014

Time: 10am - 5pm

Overview: Among the many accomplishments of 16th century French cabinetmaker Andre Roubo was his design and execution of a simple folding book stand created from a single piece of wood. We will recreate Roubo's work as faithfully as possible, starting with a solid piece of wood. Much of the work is done with chisel and mallet, to create the "hinge", before splitting the board from both ends to separate the halves. The concept is simple, but to execute it with any degree of elegance and accomplishment requires care and attention to detail. In this class the student will be required to supply some of their own tools. A list of tools and supplies is available at the store.
