Build an Arts & Crafts Entry table with Mike Pekovich
If you love Arts and Crafts furniture and are up for a fun woodworking adventure, then this table is for you. Put your joinery skills on display with this Arts and crafts-inspired entry table. Dovetails and through-tenon joinery present a fun challenge and add eye-popping interest to this creative twist on the craftsman style. Arched aprons, trestle feet, and a tiled top round out the design details. In this class, you'll learn how to give your hand-cut dovetails a power tool assist for fast, accurate results. You will also learn some unique layout techniques which will improve your joinery skills immensely! In addition you'll learn how easy it is to incorporate decorative ceramic tile into your designs. While we're at it, we'll throw in some draw-bore joinery as a great way to get tight-fitting joints without clamps.
The species of choice for this table is quartersawn white oak (make sure your chisel sharpening skills are up to snuff!) but cherry, walnut or tiger maple would make a great looking table also. Make sure to specify your preference when signing up.
