Spend a weekend living like a pioneer settler in the Maryland frontier! Using old-time hand tools like draw knives and hand drills, you'll build simple furniture and learn to prepare and cook a hearthside meal. You'll take home your own hand-constructed simple three-legged stool; learn how to split wood and build a fire for cooking; whittle and carve a simple wooden plate or bowl, and cooking skewer; and cook a simple frontier meal of johnny cakes, roasted chicken and boiled garden vegetables.
