Weekend of 6/21/2014

This weekend saw us hosting Jeff Vollmer with "Really Cool Band Saw Puzzle Boxes" and Keith Neer with "Principles of Woodworking: Making a Coffee Table with a Floating Top." Both classes got to try their hands at a lot of new techniques while learning a ton in the process. Oh, and they got to take home some really cool projects...

Making a Windsor Settee Part I with David Wright

This week we were pleased to welcome chairmaker David Wright to our school to lead part one of "Making a Windsor Settee." The temperatures may have been hot, but that didn't stop David's motivated students from following the time tested traditions that define the Windsor Settee. At the end of the five days, they are well on the way to crafting their own signature piece!
