As a reminder, Will Myers will be teaching a great class at my school next month: “Sep 19-22: “Make the Canterbury Shaker Side Table with Will Myers”. Beginner woodworkers will learn how to make this charming reproduction side table, and will walk away with many valuable hand tool woodworking skills.
