Build a Slant Front Desk on Frame with W. Mickey Callahan
Small but stately and delicate describe the slant top desk-on-frame that you will make in this week-long class with Mickey Callahan. This elegant desk is made of two major elements: the base and the slant top desk. Even though the desk has a contemporary feel, it can easily take on a more traditional look by utilizing different hardware, adding inlay designs or altering other subtle design features such as choice of moldings and finish. Each student will be given an opportunity to personalize their own desk. This is a good intermediate project for the student wishing to advance into more complex techniques such as bread boarding, fitting and making drawers, creation of wide panels and case and frame construction using dovetails and mortise-and-tenon joinery. The desk will be offered in cherry but walnut or mahogany can be used if you prefer. Mickey Callahan is the founder and president of The Society of American Period Furniture Makers. He is a graduate of North Bennet Street School and makes custom furniture from his shop in Massachusetts. Do not miss this excellent opportunity to learn from a master furniture maker while making an heirloom piece of furniture. Tuition: $645.00 plus materials.
