Build a Federal Style Tilt Top Oval Table with Mark Arnold

arnold_fed_tripod_1When it comes to Federal details, this little table packs a punch! Drawing on a panoply of skills, from turning to dovetailing and veneering to carving, the delicate lines and sunburst veneered elliptical top of this candlestand will make it a focal point in any room. Join instructor Mark Arnold as we construct this gem using a combination of traditional and contemporary techniques and materials.

Topics that we'll cover include: layout and cutting of tripod joinery, fairing of curved elements, making a tilt-top mechanism, layout and cutting of a sunburst veneer pattern, vacuum bag clamping, making a roping banding, edgebanding, and other techniques. You'll be eager to apply your new skills to projects of your own.  Some specific tools will be required in addition to the regular tool list. Please inquire when signing up.
