Make a 3-legged Stool: an Introduction to Turned Furniture
Beginners are welcome at this two-day workshop, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Jan. 15 and 16. Participants will 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.
Mastering the Card Scraper, with Tom Bodett.
The card, or cabinet, scraper is a tool that should live in every woodworker’s apron. Learn all about it 9 to 11:30 a.m. Jan. 22. 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.
Fundamentals of Woodworking

Participants will explore individual design by shaping and texturing wood surfaces and by the application of color and/or layers of color. Taught by Rhode Island School of Design graduate and studio furniture maker Martin Simpson.
