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!
It's Adrian Ferrazzutti's first time at MASW, but it certainly won't be his last. Adrian taught his take on how to make high-end, finely detailed veneered boxes and all we could say was "Wow!" His approach takes box making to a whole new level and each of his students produced a masterful box and learned techniques they'll use again and again.
Michael Ashford brings decades of experience with the metal work of the Arts & Crafts movement and the design for this hand-hammered copper lamp to MASW this week. By the end of the seven day class, all his student completed a classic copper and mica table lamp, complete with wiring and left with a whole new appreciation for detailed metal work.
It's time for John Ressler to share his guitar making magic with another class of up and coming Luthiers. This time they are making a classical style acoustic guitar!
David Franklin brings a taste of the woodworking traditions of the Pacific Northwest and a clear mastery of carving to his class this year. His students undertake this classic sculptural carving project while they learn how to carve with traditional bent knives and adzes.
