WEDNESDAYS

Two Sessions Available:

December 6 & 13, 2017

January 10 & 17, 2018

Live-edge furniture is sculptural and unique, and always stands out. Often thought of as a mid-Century Modern classic, live-edge furniture wood blends well with many style choices. In many ways, you can consider them works of art.

In this class, each student will design and build a modestly scaled waterfall live-edge bench. The legs of this bench are cut from the slab in a way that makes the wood grain seamlessly flow over the top of the bench to the legs. Each bench will be crafted from a single live-edge slab approximately 6’ long and will result in a bench that is 18 inches tall and approximately 38 inches wide. Benches will be constructed to a ready to finish state during the class.

Among areas covered during this class are: design considerations for live-edge slabs; dealing with cracks and checks; flattening and planning wide timbers; shaping wood; making angled cuts with the Festool Track Saw; angled lose-tenon joinery with the Festool Domino; edge treatments; and appropriate finishes.

Fees for this class include the cost of a live-edge slab. The live-edge slabs used in this class are sourced from trees reclaimed in the Richmond area due to storms or owner removals. Available species may include white oak, red oak, maple, or walnut. Students are free to choose from available stock.

What to Bring:

  • Safety Glasses
