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.

Build a Glass Front Bookcase with Steve Latta

glass_front_bookcase_steve_lattaGlass doors protecting your collection of small turnings, antique tools or rare first editions bring a level of sophistication to this already elegant bookcase.  Light gently bounces off the rich texture of the eight panes of old, salvaged glass, cut and glazed into each door.  The beaded face-frame, profiled shelf-edges, ogee or flat bracket feet, 3/8 mullions and a frame-and-panel back all contribute to the overall refinement of the piece.  The hardware, brass butt hinges, surface bolts and lock bolster the design.

In this class, we will get a get a great deal of the project completed during the week by focusing on a professional, strategic approach to tackling the many tasks involved in this case piece. During our week together, Steve will emphasize the process of woodworking as much as the product.  Many folks talk about the artistic nature of woodworking but in doing so, only tend to look at the finished piece sitting on display.  Steve will explore the path itself that takes us to that point and the sense of rhythm that adds its own spirit.  Don’t miss this great chance to work with one of the best furniture makers and instructors in this country.
