Event description

Description

Join Englishman Kieran Binnie to build a full-size English tool chest (a.k.a. "The Anarchist's Tool Chest”) with his assistants Christopher Schwarz and Megan Fitzpatrick.

This class is all about the dovetails (and building a traditional chest to hold around 50 hand tools) – you'll get plenty of practice hand-cutting this joint on the carcase, skirts and dust seal, plus you'll build a bomb (and butt) proof raised-panel lid to top it off. Though we will have time to build only the outside of the chest, you'll see some options in the Lost Art Press shop for outfitting the interior.

Cost
The cost of the class is $900. Registrants will be invoiced for a $150 non-refundable deposit. The balance of the tuition will be due on or around August 1.

Materials for the Chest
Sugar pine or Eastern white pine, depending on what the lumberyard has available – it will likley be around $300-$350).

Cost: $900 plus materials
