Marc Adams School of Woodworking The Premier Woodworking School in North America
Our 21st Season Marches On!
We are thrilled to continue our 21st season of providing you with the finest in hands-on woodworking education. This season promises to bring a stimulating line-up of woodworking classes and workshops, taught by the very best woodworkers the world has to offer, in the very best equipped facilities in North America.
We continue the month of July with two more exceptional classes. In the front room is "Fine Cabinetmaking with Mike Pekovich." This class will explore the finer points of cabinetmaking while students build an elegant wall cabinet. The focus will be on combining machine and handwork with classic construction techniques to produce work of the highest quality in the most efficient manner. Along the way, they'll learn dovetail construction, building and fitting doors and drawers and making mortise and tenon joinery. Not only will his students learn how to get hand tools razor sharp, they'll learn the proper techniques to get the most out of each tool. By the end of the week they'll leave with the skills to build casework of any size or style.
Meanwhile, in the schools Outpost, we are pleased to welcome back "Bottle Magic with Jeff Scanlan." If you've ever seen a ship in a bottle, then you've got some idea what Jeff's students will be working towards this week. Now imagine the challenge of passing sealed decks of cards, tennis balls and packaged bars of soap through a 1" bottle neck. The purpose of this class is to focus on the development of problem-solving tools as the students learn about and make these and other "Magic Bottles". Not only will they be able to amaze their friends and family, they'll take home a new appreciation for solving difficult puzzles. Want to know how it's all done? Sorry, it's magic!
Just another typical week here at Marc Adams School of Woodworking!
