Duration: Four days
Class Size: Maximum of four students
This 4-day class will be a celebration of geometry in woodworking with a Greene & Greene twist.
Although the table is small, and at 1st glance is seemingly simple – it is packed with interesting features and learning opportunities.
The top is a true ellipse. Each student will route their own elliptical pattern from a shop made 2-axis trammel. The 6 legs start out as two pieces each. They will be bevel ripped and miter wrapped to form 5 sides. Glue-up of the angled leg structure will be done in stages and aided by CNC made clamping cauls that direct pressure precisely where needed.
This piece was a featured project in the April 2007 Issue of Woodwork Magazine (# 104)
This will be an enjoyable week to build a piece of furniture in a relaxed atmosphere and talk about Greene and Greene, woodworking and design (three of Darrell’s favorite subjects).
