This weekend our classes included "Shellac: The Forgotten Finish with Mitch Kohanek,"Making Straight & Curved Waterfall Edges With Michael Fortune" and "Building a Windsor Bench with Greg Pennington." Plenty of fun no matter what your interests!
We were very pleased to have Andy Cole join our instructor ranks and he brought a wealth of information about bowl turning to share with his students. They spent the week absorbed in all manner of bowls and the associated techniques. Andy was definitely a real hit!
Michael Fortune returns with all the details you need to know to enhance your furniture. His students learned how to add to the value of their furniture with techniques that are relatively quick and painless, but greatly add to the overall impact of the finished piece.
We're lucky that Mitch Kohanek is a regular instructor here at MASW. This week he is teaching a more advanced finishing course and his students got to learn a lot as they added decorative finishes to their skill set arsenal.
This weekends fun begins with "Machine Maintenance, Jigs and Fixtures with Zane Powell & Doug Dale" and ends with "Forging Your Own Hardware with John Burt." Whether you like the sound of perfectly tuned machines or the look of fire and iron, this weekend was a success all the way around!
We are pleased to see Jimmy Clewes back for another year at MASW. He brings many unique techniques and makes woodturning accessible to all skill levels, as his class discovered. They all turned objects they wouldn't have tried before the class and left knowing a whole lot more!
