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.

No Fear Finishing with Roland Johnson

Join Fine Woodworking Magazine contributing editor, Roland Johnson as we expose some of the mysteries and misconceptions about finishing. This class will give you the confidence to dive head-first into virtually any finishing technique.   Starting with surface prep and ending with the final polish, you’ll spend a week learning the basics and some not-so-basic stuff about stains, dyes, glazes, varnish, shellac, lacquer and waxes. This class will give you both the confidence and skill you need to become a well-rounded woodworker. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn the complete finishing process from one of one of our leading educators. Tuition: $695.00 (plus materials)
