Class: Splay-Leg Shaker Side Table (first of 2 weeks)

A Splay-Leg Shaker Side Table

In this class, we’ll be building a splay-leg shaker side table.

This table, while of basic design, offers great woodworking and the ability to combine power tools and hand tools.

In the class we’ll focus on prepping parts by hand (time permitting), Mortise and Tenon, and drawbore joinery.

This class meets for 2 weeks, 2 hours each evening :

  • Wednesday, March 13 from 6:30 - 8:30pm
  • Wednesday, March 20 from 6:30 - 8:30pm
