Build a Queen Anne Style Drop Leaf Table with Phil Lowe

queen_anne_drop_leaf_table.jpg I am pleased to welcome Phil back for this truly unique and challenging class. Over a series of four weekends Phil will guide students through the construction of a traditional Queen Anne style drop leaf table in walnut. This is an early, medium-sized movable table that can also be closed and used as a side table. Highlights of the project’s skills include making cabriole legs, cutting mortise and tenons, dovetails, and making knuckle joints & rule joints which will provide a great learning experience for the novice as well as the experienced woodworker. Phil will bring the students through the table design and development of a cut list as well as selection of cutters and making patterns. Learn the proper layout and sawing techniques that will make shaping the cabriole leg a breeze– and then learn to turn the pad foot on the lathe! This table will challenge your joinery skills and teach you the principles of setting hinges for the rule joint which will allow for a smooth leaf action and cutting the knuckle joints which swing the leg to hold up the table leaves. Anyone who has taken one of these “series” classes with Phil knows just how much you will learn and if you have not taken one of his classes then you owe it to yourself to build this unique heirloom piece of furniture. Tuition: $895.00 plus materials.

Section 092008A: Saturday & Sunday, September 20, 21, October 18 & 19, November 22 & 23 and December 13 & 14, 9:30pm – 5:00pm
