Build a Tansu Style Jewelry  Case with Mike Pekovich

tansu jewlery case web 1Here's a great project if you want to get your dovetail on. This small case packs a lot of woodworking into a small package. The dovetailed case has a sliding door that reveals two banks of drawers. The case has two sets of five drawers each and can each set can be made from a different species, The sliding door panel is a great place to get creative- highly figured woods, inlays or even different materials could be effectively utilized. The drawer dividers are a great lesson in mitered partitions and the recessed drawer pulls are eye-catching and simple to make. The simple but elegant lines echo traditional Japanese Tansu designs and will look great as a jewelry box but can actually be thought of as a traditional spice box. Sign up today- This will be a great class! Tuition: $545.00 plus materials

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.
