Build an Arts & Crafts Style Side Table with Bob Van Dyke
This six day hands-on class is an opportunity to concentrate on good solid furniture making techniques. Maybe you have been working in the shop for years but never really knew if you were doing things efficiently or correctly- or- maybe you are fairly new to woodworking and want to get a good solid foundation in the basics of furniture making. During this fast paced week each participant will make a quartersawn white oak Arts & Crafts Style side table. This is a great vehicle to learn and practice solid joinery techniques along with surfacing stock with a handplane & card scraper. Grain matching is essential to any table and we will concentrate on that when we glue up our tops. Dovetails are an essential skill and the dovetailed drawer blades and the dovetailed drawer will give you a good chance to practice this.
This is not a class for complete beginners. It does assume some experience with tablesaws, routers and some handtools. This class provides a strong foundation for more advanced furniture projects while making a great side table that will compliment any home. And who knows? You might make some new friends and have a great time doing it!
