|Woodworking III level classes feature a variety of more complex projects. Students are expected to complete some basic work at home such as scraping, sanding and dry-fitting, thus leaving more actual class time for the more complex operations. Shop time for this handwork only can be arranged if you have no facility to work at home.|
This exciting new class features a small Federal or Hepplewhite style side table with a whole lot of challenges and a boatload of new skills to be learned. The focus of this class will be efficiency – in joinery, in ornamentation and in design. Efficiency in joinery means doing as much joinery as possible all at once and making joints that fit right off the machines. This project also features many techniques that may be new to a number of you. Working with veneer for the drawer front, dovetailing and cockbeading a drawer and adding cuff inlay and stringing to the legs, all turn a basically simple table into an heirloom piece you can be proud of. We will also be making some of the tools you will need to do the inlay work. This is a simple traditional Federal table which will fit with just about any home décor (and is small enough, 23” wide X about 17” inches deep, or you can opt to do a small square table, 17” X 17”) to fit just about anywhere. Sign up soon – these are some skills you will be able to use over and over. There will be certain handwork that you may be required to complete outside of class. Please make sure you are willing to do that before signing up. This is going to be a fun class!
