Come join Jeff and Steve and build a pair of Federal two drawer sofa or bedside tables. These tables have many Federal features and will fit anywhere in your home. Students will learn how to cut straight tapered legs, make and set in fine line stringing and banding around the skirt and cuffs. Students will shape and veneer the serpentine drawer fronts, add stringing around the drawer front and top edge, assemble then install fans inlaid in the corners of tops. Along with general period construction of the day, hand cut dovetails, and mortise and tenon construction will be demonstrated. This is an all-around simple yet elegant pair of tables with many period construction techniques to add to your abilities.
