Building Shaker Crafts, with Bobby Ives and Mike Stevens, August 7-11th, 2023


This class is open to all, beginning and advanced woodworkers. This class will introduce new and returning woodworkers to basic hand tools and some machinery. Each student will build two Shaker oval boxes and one three-tread step stool to take home. We will demonstrate different forms of joinery, including dove tail and swallow tail oval box joints. We’ll also explore both wood technology and Shaker craft history. The aim of the class is to gain a deeper understanding of basic woodworking, Shaker tradition, and one another.
