Swedish Classic: 18th Century Style Lyre-Base Trestle Table
Dining will never be so rewarding or more elegant than when you and your guests sit at a finely crafted traditional pine trestle table with classic lyre-shaped legs. Using hand and power tools, students with woodworking experience will build a table that measures approximately 84 inches long by 44 inches wide and 32 inches tall that comfortably seats eight. This course will begin with the preparation of rough sawn lumber through the gluing up of the tops and legs. We will then lay out and cut the parts, chop mortises, and size tenons. The final steps will be assembly and detailing of the table. You will leave this course knowing how to sharpen, tune and use hand tools properly for the making of furniture and how to drawbore for tight glueless joints. A memorable project to share with a partner or family member as you spend a week creating your heirloom. This class is only offered occasionally, so don't miss your chance. Registration closes Jan 1, 2019.
