Please enter a quantity.


Working with slabs is a fun challenge in the woodshop and it leads to beautiful results. This workshop will teach students everything they need to know to get from a rough slab to a fine finished piece. Instructors will cover flattening, edge treatment, use of epoxy to fill voids, the much beloved butterfly joint, sanding and finishing, and treating and attaching metal hairpin legs. Each student will make and keep a piece that can be used as a stool or side table.

All materials and supplies are included. 

Class is limited to ten students.
