Alf Sharp brings another classic period piece to MASW and the knowledge of how to make it a masterpiece. By the end of the week, his students are well on their way to making their own period masterpieces while honing many of their skills in the process.
This magical weekend included "Parent/Child Wand Magic with Wand Wizard Carl Booth," "Making Jigs & Fixtures for Machining Accurate Mortise & Tenons with Jerry C. Forshee," "Table Construction: A Surgical Approach with Steve Latta" and "Woodworkers Guide To Fine Finishing with Mike Pekovich." No matter what your interests, there was something for everyone this weekend!
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???
