This weekend Steve Latta leads "Hide Glue and Hammer Veneering," Barry Gross takes on "Turned Bracelets: Combining Wood and Metals," while Jeff Vollmer teaches "Really Cool Bandsaw Puzzle Boxes" and Doug Stowe shows how to make "Pocket Boxes." With four simultaneous classes, that's a full weekend, no matter how you slice it!
Barry Gross's Fine Writing Instruments class is quickly becoming one of the most popular turning classes at the school. It's easy to see why when every participant leaves with a wallet of custom pens worth $1000 (easy) and the skills necessary to make many more!
This weekend we played host to parents and children with "Parent/Child Making a Skateboard/Longboard with Chris Gochnour" and Michael Fortune's "Bandsaw Dovetail Extravaganza!" Plenty of opportunities to see lots of happy faces this weekend.
The Greene and Greene style is a classic and so it this blanket chest. George Knutson led his class through the theory and the process of making this inspired piece while they all learned more about the Greene and Greene tradition.
Spending a week learning the art of marquetry from Marc Adams was a real game changer for this group of lucky participants. With little marquetry experience on Monday, they leave on Friday ready to incorporate it into any future work.
This week Michael Fortune shares his extensive knowledge of how bending and shaping wood with a lucky group of students - and no straight, flat board is safe! Everyone leaves with a whole new perspective; already thinking how about to incorporate curves into their next project.
