To many woodworkers, the highboy (or tall chest) represents the pinnacle of furniture making. This is your chance to reach that summit. Join me for this 2-week class and build something extraordinary – a Connecticut-inspired Flat-top Highboy.

Flat-top Highboy

You’ll start the first week of the class at the top. That’s right, the upper case is where the project begins. We’ll dovetail the case, make and fit the fluted quarter columns, and even make the generous crown molding. Dovetailing and fitting the drawers is your homework before the next session.

Week two begins with lower-case construction. We’ll jump into making pad-footed cabriole legs, then roll through the mortise-and-tenon construction. The week finishes off with a bit of carving.
