Marc AdamsMary May

Our 3rd week of the 2014 season begins with sold-out classes by 2 veteran MASW instructors. In the front bench room we have"Basic Woodworking with Marc Adams." Marc will introduce another class to the art and craft that is modern woodworking - and there's nobody better to help you jump start your excursion into woodworking, than our own Marc Adams. They will discuss furniture design, safety in the workshop, sharpening your tools, and begin cutting their first joints by hand - all in the first day. Before they leave, they will have crafted a sculpted table and had the chance to go hands-on with many new techniques. More importantly, they will have laid the foundation for a long and satisfying journey through our craft!

While Marc's students are getting their introduction to furniture making, the students in "Fundamentals of Carving with Mary May" will likewise be laying the foundations they'll need to master the art of wood carving. Mary is widely recognized as one of the best instructors teaching wood carving today. She is particularly well known for her skill in instructing novice carvers in the fundamentals that will last a lifetime. Some of the images they will carve include: basic floral decorations, classical acanthus leaves, and a scallop shell. Along the way they will learn how to use gouges properly (and safely), how to work with the grain pattern, and how to sharpen any carving tool. They'll finish the week with all the particulars they need to embellish their next project with some distinctive carving.

Just a typical week here at Marc Adams School of Woodworking!
