Steve Latta's class meets back for their second week of the two-part Apprenticeship class. Each student is pursuing their own project now so there was a lot of great woodworking on display.
Jonathan Benson joined us this week for a crash course on getting started in veneer work for one of the countries recognized experts in the field. His students got a lot of hands on time and plenty of one-on-one instruction and produced some striking pieces.
The week Alf's students took on a challenging period dining chair, but with one of the nation's best period furniture maker by their side each student began a project sure to be a family heirloom for generations to come!
This weekend we saw "Beautiful Borders: Using Silver Wire, Stone and Precious Metals with John Koch," "Kitchen Favorites: Make Both a Salt and Tea Box with Mike Pekovich" and "Fine Finishing with Common Hardware Store Materials with Tim Puro" in their respective bench rooms. What fun!
When Mike is in our shop, elegant is definitely on the menu. This time he walks his class through the process of making a side table while his students learn how to make any project more elegant!
Matthew Hill has been with our program for many years and each year he demonstrates why his class is so popular. This week he shares his decorative flair and woodturning expertise with another lucky group of students.
