We're coming to realize that Beginning Furniture Making is our most comprehensive single introduction to woodworking and that any graduate of this class is ready, with a little practice, to participate in any other of our classes.
In this most recent class we began to explore more of Jim's proportional design techniques more and you can see the results in the above image. Simple whole number rations of dimensions just look good.
This was also pretty hand tool intensive - even though we went through a full introduction to machine dimensioning!
The biggest request from the three students - "Can you make the class longer?"
