Steve Latta and the 2015 participants in this 2-part apprenticeship return from developing the techniques and details of the federal period and are ready to apply them to their new projects. And some beautiful projects, they are!
Mike Pekovich is back for his second season and he has a lot of information to share about the art of making fine cabinets. Along with a flair for the Arts & Crafts style, his class learn many efficient ways to take their woodworking up a notch.
It's joinery, more joinery and still more joinery for another group of participants taking this signature MASW class. They leave with completed joinery they wouldn't have even attempted before the class.
Classes this weekend included: "Bringing the Work to You! Building a Bench-Top Bench with Steve Latta," "Improve Your Finishing with Aerosol Cans with Tim Puro," "Guitar Set-Up, Repair & Maintenance with John Ressler," and "Sure-Fire Tips for Perfect Dovetails with Mike Pekovich." How's that for a creative atmosphere???
Our own Doug Dale gets a week at the instructor's bench – but because Doug likes a challenge, he's going to build that bench! This week each participant will make their own custom bench and Doug is there to ease them through the process.
New to the MASW lineup this year, is Wes Bushor. Wes is a logger by trade and shared his expertise with timber and his pursuit of naturally simple furniture with his students. The result was a whole bunch of fun...and some really cool furniture!
