Build a Pembroke Table – Hands-on Class
July 17 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm
An event every day that begins at 8:30 am, repeating until July 17, 2020
In the 5-day Pembroke Table hands-on class, you’ll stretch your woodworking skills. You’ll be reproducing a table from Newport, Rhode Island that was originally made by Holmes Weaver in approximately 1795.
From its graceful tapered legs to its elegant oval top, this Pembroke table is in every way a masterpiece. You’ll begin the week fitting mortise-and-tenon joints, tapering legs, and installing string inlay and making bellflowers. The week concludes with the creation of knuckle joints that support the drop leaves, and installation of the table top.
