Summer class schedule now available.

Instructor: Matt Kenney

Matt Kenney taught philosophy before he started working as an associate editor at Fine matt kenney imageWoodworking. He built furniture as a hobby and made his first big project, a crib for his daughter, on a 2 ft. by 10 ft. apartment balcony. Then a professional furniture maker in Camden, S.C. let Kenney hang out in his shop and taught him almost everything he knows about the craft. Kenney has been at Fine Woodworking since 2008.

Thanks for a great class today at the Connecticut Valley School of Woodworking.



Hi Bob,
Just a quick note to thank you and Will for an excellent experience in the Chapin Class.  I had to be home early and was not able to properly thank  you for the additional time on Sunday.  I have learned a lot in this class as I have in all of your programs.  I’ll see you in the fall.
