Make a 3-legged Stool: an Introduction to Turned Furniture
Beginners Welcome! In this two-day workshop, we’ll use the lathe, band saw, drill press, and router, to turn dried lumber into fun and functional 3-legged stools. The turned legs offer a great introductory exercise to those new to the wood lathe. Saturday and Sunday, January 15-16;, 10 am – 5 pm.

Mastering the Card Scraper, with Tom Bodett
The card, or cabinet, scraper is a tool that should live in every woodworker’s apron. It saves time and leaves little trace of itself compared to hand and power sanding. The cost of the class includes a quality card scraper, a burnishing tool, and a diamond sharpening stone. You’ll leave with everything you need to take your finishing process to the next level. Saturday, January 22 , 9AM – 11:30 AM.

Fundamentals of Woodworking
Beginners Welcome! This introductory course is designed to give beginner students an overview of the safe use of some of the most common machines and hand tools used in woodworking, while building a three-legged stool. We will explore individual design by shaping and texturing wood surfaces and by the application of color and/or layers of color. Taught by RISD graduate and studio furniture maker Martin Simpson.
8 Sessions, Monday and Wednesday evenings, 6 – 9 pm; January 24 – February 16.

Please note: All class participants must be fully vaccinated against Covid-19.
