Join us for a Build Along Session. Together we will make this Floating Top Coffee Table over 8 weeks. We will meet for two hours on Saturdays starting April 17th. Classes 1, 3, 5, and 7 will be our two hour Class/ demo sessions running from 11am – 1pm PDT. Alternating Saturdays we will host a one hour Q&A sessions also starting at 11am PDT. Bring all of your questions about the project that come up during the week. Work at your own bench at your own pace and build this great project along with a Master Woodworker. You will learn a ton about joinery, construction methods, assembly, and finishes.

Our first Class/ demo session will include topics like going over the downloadable project plans, choosing lumber, milling suggestions and tips, and joinery choices.

Class/ demo two will focus on mortising options and cutting and fitting your rail/ leg tenons.

The third Class/ demo session concentrates on shaping the legs, leg shape options, routing for the stretcher joints, and assembly of the base.

In our final Class/ demo we will discuss adding the risers onto the stretchers, attaching a split table top, adding dovetail keys, and some finishing techniques.

Every other week, our one hour Q&A sessions will help you through the parts of the project that are slowing your progress or don’t make sense or you need another reminder about. Students will have two weeks of shop time at their bench to get to the next phase of construction.

This is a simple table project with lots of room for your own creative input. All sorts of options exist for leg shapes and table top. Use your own lumber that you’ve been saving for just this one of a kind project.
