Day 1 starts out by examining different styles of bases and taking an in-depth look at the joinery techniques used by furniture craftsmen for centuries. We will then review the use of the Festool Domino, specifically the difference in use when executing leg to apron joinery vs. the panel joinery that we learned in Part 1. Student will then start planning and working out the details of their own base and begin preparing their stock as well as laying out their joinery.
Day 3 will look at assembling and gluing up complex assemblies as well as pre-finishing parts in complex assemblies. Students will get their projects glued up.
Day 4 will take a look at finishing complex assemblies and discuss details that can be incorporated into the furniture like drawers, inlay and other decorative elements. Students will be applying finish to their projects.
