It's no secret that learning CAD software had a pretty significant learning curve. Luckily, Bob Lang is acknowledged as the expert when it comes to using the Sketchup 3D modeling software to design a project on the computer. So this week, instead of building a project in our shop, these folks learned to build projects in their heads!
Alf Sharp brings yet another period furniture masterpiece as he and his class take on the challenge of this classic piece of American furniture. Some of the skills these folks left with include crafting a cabriole leg, carving the trifid foot and a rococo shell, as well as dealing with curved and angled joinery. Not bad for 5 days time!
This weekends attractions included "Beautiful Borders: Using Silver Wire, Stone and Precious Metals With John Koch", "Laser Marquetry: an Introduction to the Future of Veneering With Marc Adams", and "Sharpen Then Hone Your Skills With Mike Pekovich"!
