In this workshop students build a traditional candle stand table with turned base and dovetailed leg joinery. Traditional joinery methods and the use of hand tools, such as chisels and hand planes, are covered so that participants can build a beautiful heirloom table. Discussions include project planning and design, wood selection, preparation and glue-ups. Students will learn new skills on the lathe, bandsaw and router table. This gateway class will take your ability to the next level by expanding your furniture making skills. Intermediate woodworking experience and basic experience using a lathe is recommended.
