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.

Pencil Post Bed with Steve Kain

144_Steve_Pencil_Post_bed.jpgThis pencil post bed is a great project that will challenge your woodworking skills and will become a family heirloom. Making the tapered posts from 3 inch thick cherry, making the 14" wide headboard (from one or two boards), making the mortice and tenons and the draw bolts for the frame along with shaping the delicate teester rails at the top of the posts are only a few of the challenges in this ambitious class. As with all advanced classes, work at home (or in the shop by arrangement) between class sessions will be required in order to stay on track with the project. The bed can be made as a full size or Queen size. This class will be strictly limited to eight students. Tuition: $375.00 plus materials
