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 Shaker style Chimney Cupboard with Mike Pekovich

Mike_pekovich_chimney_cupboardThis fun project combines a lot of the classic elements of Shaker furniture in one package. The tall case features frame and panel doors with a trio of dovetailed drawers. Its small footprint means that it provides a lot of storage without taking up a lot of floor space and the cupboard will fit nicely in the kitchen or bedroom or wherever extra storage is needed. You'll learn a simple technique for sturdy case construction that you can use on other projects as well. You'll also learn how to dress up frame and panel doors with a thumbnail molding and how to hot rod your hand-cut dovetails with help from the table saw and router. Along the way you'll get a great lesson in how to get a perfect fit on doors and drawers. Tuition: $725.00 plus materials
