We're lucky that Mitch Kohanek is a regular instructor here at MASW. This week he is teaching a more advanced finishing course and his students got to learn a lot as they added decorative finishes to their skill set arsenal.
This weekends fun begins with "Machine Maintenance, Jigs and Fixtures with Zane Powell & Doug Dale" and ends with "Forging Your Own Hardware with John Burt." Whether you like the sound of perfectly tuned machines or the look of fire and iron, this weekend was a success all the way around!
We are pleased to see Jimmy Clewes back for another year at MASW. He brings many unique techniques and makes woodturning accessible to all skill levels, as his class discovered. They all turned objects they wouldn't have tried before the class and left knowing a whole lot more!
Marc is acknowledged across the nation as a true expert of veneer and it's applications in marquetry. This week a group of lucky students get to learn what took Marc decades of experience to master. They leave with their own marquetry panels, the secrets to dying your own veneer and a wealth of experience!
John Burt takes his students through the process of building this Viking Mastermyr Tool Chest from 1000 A.D. with nothing but hand tools and some hard work. Along the way, they learn some angled finger lap joinery and get lots of one-on-one time with John.
This weekend we are pleased to host "Advanced Band Sawn Boxes With Jeff Vollmer" and "Hand Planes and Their Uses With Thomas Lie-Nielsen and Christopher Schwarz." Three great instructors!
