Detailed Description

Woodworking 101 - Make a Shaker Inspired Table with Jim Dillon

Tuesday - Thursday, April 23 - 25, 2019 from 5:00pm to 9:00pm
Class Size: 8
Hands-On Workshop

Launch yourself in learning how to build solid wood furniture through the construction of this handsome and versatile end table piece. You’ll use an efficient combination of hand tool and machine processes as you glue up the top, mill and taper leg stock and cut floating tenon joinery. You’ll finish with a milk paint finish on to the base and time permitting, follow with a durable clear top coat. Jim will share tips on how to shop for lumber (materials sourced for this project are from big box stores) that will prove invaluable to help you easily identify the lumber that’s the rose among thorns at your local home center store. The basic furniture construction concepts you’ll leave with, along with design and joinery concepts for tailoring for use in your own shop space with some basic power and hand tools, will set you on course for success for your future furniture projects. Come ready for 3 intense nights of work!

Finished table is approximately 31″ high with a top that measures 18″ x 18″.

All tools are provided, but you’re welcome to bring your own shop apron, tape measure and combination square if you like.

This class has a $45 materials charge payable in cash or check direct to the instructor on the first day of class.
