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.

Learn Dovetails and Drawers with Steve Kain

dovetails.jpg Dovetail joints are considered the hallmark of fine craftsmanship and with a little practice and confidence they are not that hard to make. Drawers are the logical place where most dovetails are used but they need to be designed properly in order for the dovetail to work in conjunction with the drawer bottom and back. Students will each make a sample drawer using the skills learned in the class. Steve will demonstrate layout and cutting the joint using a combination of machines and hand-tools. A number of variations on attaching the drawer bottom will also be explored. Through dovetails and half-blind dovetails will be utilized. Tuition: $225.00 (plus materials)

Section 012909B: Thursday evenings, January 29 – February 19, 6:00pm - 9:30pm
