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 an Inlaid Tool Chest with Glen Huey

CVSW_PaintedNothing says more about a woodworker's abilities and attributes than his or her tool chest, the quintessential woodworking project. How you keep and store your tools is a reflection on your work. During this week long class, you'll create that identity. Begin by building your chest using the highest quality joinery, including hand-cut dovetails and  mortise-and-tenon joints. The case front pivots then lifts and glides into the case to reveal storage drawers built using 18th-Century period construction techniques.  This tool chest "pops" with outstanding surface ornamentation. The case sides are inlaid with shop-made sand-shaded corner fans and banding and the drawer fronts feature a matching string inlay. The case front reflects Federal period inlay with oval panels bordered by twin contrasting stringing set in veneered fields.                                                   

CVSW_OpenGlen Huey is the senior editor for Popular Woodworking Magazine and has been woodworking and making furniture most of his adult life. Glen has also written a number of excellent furniture making books and teaches classes at select woodworking schools. Don’t miss this chance to work with an expert teacher and craftsman- and learn some great skills while making a great project. Tuition: $795.00 plus materials
