Make a 3-legged Stool: an Introduction to Turned Furniture

Beginners Welcome! In this two-day workshop, we’ll use the lathe, band saw, drill press, and router, to turn dried lumber into fun and functional 3-legged stools. The turned legs offer a great introductory exercise to those new to the wood lathe.  Taught by woodworking artist and teacher, Doug Finkel.

Saturday and Sunday, January 15-16;, 10 am – 5 pm.

Mastering the Card Scraper, with Tom Bodett

Join HatchSpace co-founder, Tom Bodett, to learn about the card, or cabinet, scraper – a tool that should live in every woodworker’s apron. It saves time and leaves little trace of itself compared to hand and power sanding.  The cost of the class includes a quality card scraper, a burnishing tool, and a diamond sharpening stone. You’ll leave with everything you need to take your finishing process to the next level.

Saturday, January 22 , 9AM – 11:30 AM
