Tea tables have always been a favorite form of furniture builders. In fact, they can challenge experienced woodworkers, or provide the budding woodworker an easy-to-build project that provides challenges and an elegant, formal look. How far you take the design is your call.
During the class you’ll learn how to lay out, cut and shape a cabriole leg (including how to shape a slipper foot), discover how to shape and apply top moldings that fit over your tabletops to allow for seasonal movement without the corners separating and how to create and install candle-slides. Plus, we’ll discuss options to finish your tea table.
Materials are not included in the class fee. Lumber for this project may be purchased through 360 Woodworking, or you can bring your lumber with you to class.
Attendees are responsible for safety glasses and hearing protection, combination or machinist square, bench chisels, mallet, dovetail saw, marking gauge and tape measure or folding rule, if you have them. If you do not have the tools on the list, don’t panic. We have plenty of tools for your use in class.
