Upcoming Classes:


I teach at the Port Townsend School of Woodworking and have several classes coming up:

Furniture Making Intensive, January 6, - March 27, 2020

                                                                                                                                  Whiskey Cabinet and Drawing, ©JPM

In this second class in our series of intensive classes, we take students coming from some skill, either graduates of Foundations of Woodworking or students of similar experience and introduce them to furniture. You as a student will begin to design your own work. With that increased and developing design sensitivity we will work together to develop an extensive toolkit of technical woodworking skills,  both hand and machine to execute your designs. Students graduating from this course will have the initial skill to start their own practice and have the experience necessary to enroll in our third intensive: The Art of Furniture: Finding your Voice.

This will be a projects based class. The projects will be basic and somewhat constrained in the beginning and flow into furniture of increasing variety and complexity as your skills develop.
