This week we complete a three year run of a class devoted to the charitable Narrow Gate foundation. Not only did students get to make a specially designed document box, they helped raise over $150,000 for the foundation!
It's always a pleasure to have Marc Adams teaching Joinery, in part because it's often one of the first classes new students take. What a great introduction to the school!
Jeff Miller's chairs are legendary in both aesthetics and comfort. This week Jeff shows his class how to achieve both while they make a superb slat back chair.
This weekend was unusual in that we only had one class, "Make the Perfect Router Table with Doug Dale & Zane Powell." Good thing, too because it was a busy weekend in the front shop!
Scott Groves veneer work is out of this world and the techniques he uses to achieve his asymmetrical matches and compound surfaces are the cutting edge of veneer work in North America. This week he shares those techniques with a lucky group of eager participants. What won't they veneer???
David Orth shows his class how to use boat building principles to make objects and sculpture with thin sheets of metal and some simple metalworking techniques. They leave well on their way to mastering both!
