Build an Elegant Table

We meet for seven evening sessions to build a small trestle-style table. We will use two types of mortise and tenon joints and a sliding dovetail joint. These will give you the option of disassembling the table for shipping or storage. We will practice the safe use of the table saw, miter saw, jointer, planer, routers, and band saw. Your completed table will be ready for you to apply a coat of finish at home. This course is for beginning and intermediate woodworkers. No experience is necessary.

Class covers:

  • Table design
  • Hardwood types
  • Power tool usage
  • Table joinery

After completing this class you can extend your skills with more complex projects by signing up for the You Can Build It or Maker Club workshops.

Class fee is $294 for 7 sessions of 3 hours each. (7 person maximum). The class fee includes the poplar (a type of wood) that we use to make the tables. Other species of wood are available at additional cost.

Students under 18 can enroll if a parent also enrolls — or with instructor’s prior approval.
