This weekend included three great classes. We enjoyed hosting "Chip Carving with Herman Bueno", "Parent/Child Making a Skateboard/Longboard With Chris Gochnour", and Using Color and Faux Finishes to Embellish Your Turnings with Matthew Hill.
Matthew Hill's woodturning skills are only half of the story. The other half is the colors and textures that he adorns them with. This week, his students get to experience both, as they learn how to make these exquisite turned and decorated boxes themselves.
Chris Gochnour returns to MASW to share another project with our students. This time it's a gorgeous curved-front sofa table. Join his class as they step through the process of making this contemporary classic, using a judicious mix of hand and power tools.
Allan Breed is one of the nations best known period furniture experts and an acknowledged expert in 18th-century carving techniques, so who better to have teach our "18th-Century Carving: Shells, Fans, Foliage & More" class? His work is breathtaking and his instruction is first rate, as these lucky students found out, during their week with him.
This weekend we welcome John Ressler back to teach part 1 of "Making an Acoustical Guitar". Meanwhile Alan Lacer is in the lathe room with "Finishing for Woodturners". Finally Doug Stowe finishes out the weekend with "Interior Architecture for Decorative Boxes". Another information filled weekend at MASW!
It's a banner week as we repeat 3 of our most popular (and sold out) classes. Doug Stowe leads another group through the mysteries of making beautiful decorative boxes. And I mean lots and lots of boxes...
