All workshops scheduled for 2020 have been cancelled due to COVID-19. Please check back in the early fall for the 2021 offerings.
Learn how to cut two important woodworking joints: dovetails and dadoes. The best way to learn is practice, so we'll make a small wall cabinet that has dovetails at the corners, dovetailed drawers, and dadoes for the shelf and dividers between the drawers. Other skills will be covered as well, such as surface preparation and finishing, and cutting rabbets and groves. At the end of class, everyone will leave with a completed wall cabinet ready to be hung and admired at home. Beginner and Beyond

Matt Kenney is a professional box and furniture maker living in Northwest Connecticut. Not too long ago, he spent a year designing and making 52 unique boxes. He undertook the project as a means to improve his design skills, but found that the woodworking community at large was interested in what he was doing, and they followed along intently as he wrote about the boxes each week on his website www.mekwoodworks.com . After he completed the project, he wrote a book about his experience: 52 Boxes in 52 Weeks (Taunton Press). Matt teaches woodworking around the world, writes about the craft, and hosts The Matt and Joe Woodworking Fun Hour podcast. In his spare time, he draws robot illustrations. You can follow what he’s up to in the shop and at the drawing table on Instagram (@mekwoodworks, @thebookofrobots).
