2016 (first half) Workshops

The first half of 2016 Furnituremaking Workshops are now up on our web site. It took much longer than usual to pull all of this together; I just made the switch over to a new type of dialysis last week, and needed to figure out my schedule and learn how much (or little) flexibility there was going to be as a result of this change.

I’ve kept all of the most popular classes in the schedule, but I’ve also added a bunch of exciting new ones into the mix. There are a few new projects (A Shaker-style side table, and a Chippendale style chair – both made primarily by hand, and a tool tote with angled dovetails),  a Chair Design Workshop (a great place to explore both chairs and design in general), and some more advanced classes in both dovetails and mortise and tenon joints.
