Is your table rocking, without any music? Don't stick a sugar packet under the leg, come learn how to make that leg stay in place! Michael Pendleton of MP Custom Made will lead a workshop showing how to make simple and easy repairs to common furniture problems. We will learn how to tighten up tables and chairs, loosen sticky drawers and adjust cabinet doors, using primarily hand tools. We will also discuss common problems and ways to improve existing pieces.
