Make a Boston Blockfront Chest – Hands-on Class
August 12 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm
An event every day that begins at 8:30 am, repeating until August 14, 2020
The Boston Blockfront Chest is a distinctly American form. Not only are the drawer fronts stepped (or blocked) to form symmetrical concave and convex surfaces, but the top, base molding, and feet are blocked as well.
Boston Blockfront Chest
This 5-day class begins with case construction. You’ll learn how to form the blocked drawer blades that separate the four blocked drawer fronts. With the case together, you’ll move on to forming the drawer fronts to match the blades. The week wraps up with the creation of the base molding and feet.
