Pop-Up Class May 4
Greetings from McLaughlin Woods!
It's time for another Pop-up Class! In fact, Tom is offering a "2-for-1 Deal" -- 2 great topics on 1 day: Chairmaking Techniques and Veneering Basics and Beyond.
This full day experience is the same format Tom will be teaching at a national event Wood Magazine is hosting next month. Since we know most of our local friends cannot fly out to catch the presentation, we thought we'd offer them the opportunity to attend as well -- right here in our Canterbury, NH shop Saturday, May 4.
Of course, if you're located near Des Moines, IA come, out to the Weekend With Wood event there! If you attend, please be sure to introduce yourself to me.
The class format is demonstration-based, topical -- like an apprentice lesson. There is little to no hands-on so no worries about having the right tools or paying for materials.
The 1st session will be devoted to one of Tom's favorite subjects, Chairmaking Techniques. Topics include: the process and methods of making a mortise and tenoned chair, design considerations, the drawing approach, making patterns, shaping parts with useful jigs, compound joinery simplified on the tablesaw, and great details with power and hand tools.
The 2nd session will focus on exploring the needlessly intimidating world of Veneering Basics and Beyond. Topics include: buying and handling veneer, using the essential veneering tools, choosing the best adhesives, vacuum press advantages, and demonstration of making a sunburst top.
The class will run from 9:00 AM to 3:30 PM and is limited to 15 participants -- offered on a first-come, first-served basis. The cost of $60 covers everything for the day including complimentary coffee and LUNCH. It will be collected upon arrival -- no deposits required. All we ask is if you register, you show up.
Sign Me Up!
If you're interested in participating on May 4, ACT NOW! E-mail us and indicate you'd like to register. Provide your name and phone number and we'll lock in your spot. Then, on the day of the class bring $60 in the form of cash or a check.
Staying in Touch
If you have not already done so, Like us on Facebook and join our communication circle there! Occasionally we highlight current projects and post instructional video Tom has filmed as well. The latest video post is a follow-up to the Designing a Coffee Table Class we hosted back in January. Check it out!
Here n our website and Facebook page we will soon be posting additional classes for the 2013 Summer Schedule, as well as additional Pop-up classes for upcoming weeks. We will notify those of you on our mailing list via email as well. Tell your friends to join on our mailing list so they don't miss it!
Hope to see you in the shop!

If you are interested in personal guidance through a specified project in the shop for a stated time frame, please contact Tom to discuss project options, and the fee.
Great gift idea!
Give the experience of a woodworking workshop to your favorite woodworking enthusiast - pay the whole fee, or give enough to get them started towards a class of their choice. Not only will they learn a lot, but in most cases, they'll bring home a piece of fine furniture to enjoy for generations to come!
