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.

Make a Wooden Molding Plane with Mario Rodriguez

146_Mario_molding_plane.jpgMost woodworkers are fascinated by handplanes and are even more fascinated by wooden molding planes. In this unique hands-on class students will each make their own "fluting" molding plane from start to finish. Shaping the iron, heat treating and sharpening, shaping the plane body and most importantly, using the plane are just a few of the many aspects of this class. Mario brings years of hand-tool experience to his classes and encourages his students to discover the freedom that using hand-tools allows in woodworking. Don't miss this opportunity to learn from one of the leaders in the field while making a useful and unique woodworking tool.
