We kick our 2015 season off with 3 sold-out classes from 3 acknowledged experts in the woodworking field. In this class, Marc Adams leads one of our signature classes as his class progresses through the challenges of making great joinery in this transformational class. Using both hand-tools and machinery, they explore all the common furniture joints and leave with a large box of each type of joint.
Michael Fortune's students got a crash course in the challenging discipline of chair design this week. What started as a discussion of what makes a good chair quickly evolved into a room full of singular designs. With plenty of time to explore alternatives and many group discussion, everyone left with their own special chair designed.
We round out this week with a comprehensive overview of the art of woodturning with Alan Lacer. In just 5 short days his students got a taste of all the major categories of turned work including: spindle turning, bowl work, and making delicate lidded boxes. Everyone left with a healthy appreciation for the joys of woodturning.
Gary Striegler joins us for the first event of the new season - and it's a great day for student and instructor alike. Best of all, all proceeds from the day went to support the Roger Cliffe Memorial Fund. The RCMF helps worthy students who might not otherwise be able to afford to attend MASW. Our summer intern program is just one way the RCMF continues change woodworkers lives!
We end our 21st season of classes the way we began it - with Marc's sold out Joinery class. Truly the bedrock of our woodworking program; it's launched the careers of a generation of woodworkers. What a wonderful way to end the season!
Alan Lacer helps us finish off the 2014 season with another sold out session. In just 5 days his students get to experience most of the disciplines that make up the craft of woodturning. How's that for a breakout class!
