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.

Machining Accurate Furniture Joints with Bob Van Dyke


Due to the logistics of many of the project-oriented classes, most of the machine setups used in joinery have been completed before class begins. In this hands-on class students will learn how to set up the machines to make an accurate joint and will each have the opportunity to set up the machines and run the joints themselves. Basic machine set-up will be covered along with some of the things you need to be looking for that the owner’s manuals don’t always tell you about. There is no project for this class.   Tuition: $120.00 (includes materials)
