You can choose from three inspirational workshops

The Jalusta Half Round Table Workshop
This is the perfect piece for use as a hall, bed-side, or end table. The clean, spare lines and alluring curves, characteristic of Scandinavian furniture, inspired its name - the “Jalusta” table (Finnish for tripod).
Made completely of solid wood, its construction employs modern and very efficient shop techniques and sturdy joinery. While building this table, in just 1 day or 2 evenings, students will learn how to:
- employ modern biscuit joinery for fast, strong joints
- shape clean, smooth curves on the router table using shop-made jigs
- glue up and clamp projects efficiently without mess or bother
- correctly select, pre-drill, and install modern hardware
- clean up and properly sand their project(s)
Thoughtfully designed with plenty of eye-appeal, and at the same time, carefully planned for easy and safe construction by the total beginner, this small project is a terrific introduction to woodworking.

Hall Mirror Woodworking Class
This beautiful piece will grace any contemporary home and can be used in the hall entry, mud room, bath, or bedroom. The streamlined frame is a pleasing and well-proportioned rectangle that features a striking solid wood panel above the mirror glass. The construction of the SoHo Hall Mirror employs a combination of precise machine operations with amazing portable power tool joinery. This course has been carefully designed to ensure completion of this beautiful project by any total beginner in just 1 day or 2 evenings. In this course, students will learn to:
- construct a strong and square frame
- re-saw solid wood on the band saw
- use modern pocket screw joinery
- set up, adjust, and use the hand-held router
- use the oscillating spindle sander to achieve smooth and pleasing curves
- Safely install mirror glass

Natural Edge Step Stool
Everyone can use a step stool. Isn't that top shelf in the kitchen, office, or library always just out of reach?  This elegant and beautiful step stool can also be used as a perch for books and collectables or as a bench or play table for small children.
The solid construction is simple, straightforward, and very strong; an open bridle joint connecting the uprights to the medial beam; no fasteners, no screws, or glue. The secret is the very precise fit of these 3 pieces. When building this project, students will learn how to:
- lay-out and mark their work for precise results
- use the bandsaw for cutting curved shapes
- use the oscillating spindle sander to achieve smooth and flowing curves
- use the table saw to create a traditional open bridle joint
     
The pure and simple step stool combines the free-flowing natural form of a live-edge plank with robust age-old joinery, to create a unique piece that will really stand out in your home.
