Marc Adams introduces another group of students to the wonders of woodworking in his Basic Woodworking class. By the end of the week, they've all made their first piece of furniture and learned lots of valuable lessons along the way.
There are lots of ways to embellish your woodworking projects so John Hamm spent this week showing his class how to "paint with light" as they made their first leaded art glass projects. Talk about impressive!
Jimmy Clewes returned to MASW this week to share his techniques and expertise with this luck group of woodturners. They all left with enhanced skills and newly completed turnings to amaze their friends and family.
This weekend we have the privilege to host "Getting the Most from Your Bandsaw with Michael Fortune," "Surface Embellishments: It's Not Just for Woodturners with Jennifer Shirley," "Turning Wet Wood with Jimmy Clewes" and "Sawing and Shaping a Cabriole Leg with Jeff Headley & Steve Hamilton!"
Jeff Headley and Steve Hamilton join us again as they present their class with another American icon - the Shenandoah Valley Tall Case Grandfather Clock. Participants in this challenging class spent a busy week creating the parts for their clock. While they'll still have plenty to work on back home, they all made great strides in beginning this instant family heirloom!
Mitch Kohanek's approach to learning the fine art of proper finishing is the best we've seen so it's always a pleasure to welcome him back. This week another group learns why hands-on is the only way to really learn how to finish.
