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.

“Spy Vs Spy” Build a pair of Unique Side Tables with Kevin Rodel

Kevin Rodel End Table Spy vs Spy lightened 640This table is based on a 1903 design by the Viennese architect, Josef Hoffmann. Kevin has made a few changes. It is a very striking design but simple to build. It features several joinery, design and decorative techniques that you can easily master and apply to other projects. These include a reverse taper leg with inlaid “cuffs” or feet, a foolproof grid construction method and a “pinwheel” top construction. We will each make two of these tables in class and students will have a choice of wood species to pick from.Kevin Rodel Viennese Table lightened 640

The design of this table lends itself to many different finishing effects and Kevin will be hosting an interesting and highly recommended class on “Alternative Finishes” such as fuming, bleaching, chemical dyes and the wire brush technique of  "jin-di-sugi" . This Alternative Finishes class immediately follows the week-long class. Sign up today.
