Side Table Class

We just finished our Side Table Class. Students are allowed to chose one of three styles, Federal, Shaker, or Mission. We go over the differences and similarities in the styles before we start to build. In this class both Dan and Michael wanted to build a Mission style table. We made a drawing and they decided to do the majority of the work by hand. I will give them a lot of credit as they hung in there and chopped a lot of mortises and sawed quite a few tenons. I was a hard taskmaster and kept them moving so we could complete the tables in the requisite six days.
