Mortise & Tenon Side Table

Learn mortise and tenon joinery while making a solid wood side table.


Class Description

In this 2-day class, you will construct a solid wood side table. We will use traditional mortise and tenon joinery, shape legs and aprons, and apply a hand rubbed finish. Students will lay out and cut their own joinery and use a table saw, bandsaw, hollow chisel mortise and a shaper. Students have the option of picking a natural edged plank* to make their table one of a kind.


*Incremental cost for optional natural edged plank.


This class will meet 4 hours each day, and will have a 30 minute break.
