In Memory of Richard Bergen

Richard BergenIt is with great sadness that I tell you Richard Bergen lost his courageous battle with Leukemia on Thursday, April 9, 2020. He was a close personal friend for over 20 years and a huge asset in the school. Richard took dozens and dozens of classes over the years and assisted in most of the beginning classes for many years. Every studio photograph of the school furniture projects was done by Richard- free of charge!

Richard never hesitated to jump in and help out any time we needed it and was a huge help to hundreds of students..

He will be sorely missed.

Build an Arched Entry Table with Mike Pekovich

Mike Pekovich arched entry Table detail 800Put your joinery skills on display with this Arts and Crafts-inspired entry table. Dovetail and through-tenon joinery present a fun challenge and add eye-popping interest to this creative twist on the traditional Craftsman style. Arched aprons, trestle feet, and breadboard ends round out the design details- and the joinery challenges! In this class, you'll learn efficient building strategies that get the most from machine and hand work, and you will learn how to give your hand-cut dovetails a power tool assist for fast and accurate results. While we're at it, we'll throw in some draw-bore joinery as a great way to get tight-fitting joints without clamps. This is a great table that will fit into just about any home and Mike Pekovich, who is the Creative Director for Fine Woodworking Magazine and author of “The Why & How of Woodworking”, is an excellent instructor. Sign up today. Space is limited. Tuition: $795.00 plus materials
