Make a Bow Front Entry Way Table with Adrian Ferrazzutti (7 Days) September 12-18, 2022
This class will be jam packed with demonstrations covering a wide array of techniques while still giving students time to complete a gorgeous hallway table that is sure to impress. Students will learn to build bending forms and laminate a curved and veneered apron with bridle joints and tenons to accept legs as well as an applied cock bead in contrasting wood. Adrian will show how to cut mortise and tenons in curved parts and taper legs as well as inlaying a cuff on the foot of each leg for a little punch of contrast. The star of the table will be the radial veneered top with a beveled edge that is also veneered and finished off with a string inlay and solid wood applied edging. If that’s not enough, Adrian will show how to add a drawer to the design so each student can construct a drawer pocket on a bow front table with a curved fronted drawer made from the actual apron for a seamless grain match that make the drawer virtually invisible the unsuspecting viewer.
This class will be an action packed and a fast paced seven-day dive into so many techniques it normally would take four or more classes to cover them all. Each student will create a distinctive table with unique wood combinations and details to make it their own.
