Make a Mid-Century Modern Coffee Table
June 9 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm
An event every day that begins at 9:00 am, repeating until June 10, 2022
The Mid-Century Modern Coffee Table class is perfect for the beginning furniture maker or the master. Historically, mid-century modern furniture tends to be simplistic, stiff, and boxy in appearance. It was, after all, factory-made. The tool and production limitations were the driving factors in most of the designs of the period. This rare gem of a design effectively balances form, function, and historically long-lived joinery techniques to create a visually balanced, well-constructed table.
Mid-Century Modern Coffee Table
Although this project looks complex, this coffee table is perfect for the budding furniture maker. Simple wedged, round-tenon joinery gives this table an elegant appearance without being ornate. The week begins with a full-scale drawing, then quickly moves into joinery and making all the tapered legs.
