Build a Bermuda Sugar Chest – Hands-on Class
May 11 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm
An event every day that begins at 8:30 am, repeating until May 15, 2020
In the 5-day Bermuda Sugar Chest class, you’ll learn how to make the complex Bermuda dovetails. As you can see in the photo to the left, Bermuda dovetails are far more than a structural joint. What you may not know is, the patterns on the ends of the tails are unique to the person that made them. These useful, and decorative chests were often made from Bermuda cedar – now a protected species.

While the focus of the class is on learning, perfecting and making a chest with Bermuda dovetails the ultimate goal is to make a complete sugar chest. You’ll make bandy legs with pad feet as part of the frame that raises the chest off the ground.
