Build a Table from a Single Board with Mike Pekovich
This small table is a simple project that lets you focus on using wood successfully and efficiently. In this class, we'll build the entire table from a single board. The focus, though, is not just on economy. By getting all of the parts from one board, we can ensure a great color match throughout the piece. And by cutting parts from strategic locations in the board, you’ll end up with pleasing grain patterns in all the right places. Mike will make you aware of the different grain patterns that contribute, in a subtle way, to the overall success of the piece. By working with just one piece of wood you are forced to become acutely aware of these patterns and how they affect the overall look of a piece of furniture. Along the way, you’ll get great lessons in resawing and rough-milling stock. You'll also learn to build and fit a traditional dovetailed drawer. The shaped legs are a departure for many of you and the possibilities are really endless. Don’t miss this great class with Fine Woodworking Magazines, Art Director, Mike Pekovich.
