We have arranged for Tom McLaughlin to spend a day at the Bain Center on Friday May 5, 2023 which is the day before our May monthly Guild meeting. Tom will present a variety of intermediate and advanced techniques related to building a Contemporary Bowfront Sofa End Table.
If you’ve yet to experience Tom’s teaching style, you’re in for a treat as he clearly delivers concepts for those at various levels of expertise to understand, with professional skill and a disarming humor.
The day’s topics will cover the overall design considerations for the table, the joinery processes, shaping and veneering the sides, methods for making a Bowfront drawer, as well as veneering, edge-banding and inlay approaches for making the top, as time allows. Tom will also address options for finishing, followed by a time for Q & A at the end. This is an opportunity to improve your woodworking skills and get inspired to bring your woodworking to the next level.
