Description

Generations of woodworkers have been profoundly influenced by the writing, teaching, and work of James Krenov. In this course two notable woodworkers who originally studied with Krenov share his legacy of sensitivity to materials, attention to detail, and honest workmanship. Participants begin by making ‘Krenov-style’ wooden hand planes and using their planes to complete a series of technical exercises such as flattening a board. Next, they explore topics such as wood selection and grain pattern, frame and panel construction, edge joinery, and dowelled carcass construction by making small wall-hung cabinets. Jenn and David share Krenov’s philosophy through slide presentations, video clips, and books. Participants can expect to leave with an exciting new set of skills and a greater understanding of wood as a creative medium. Tuition: $1,170
