What a Class at MASW is Like – A Students Perspective

Greene & Greene Chair Class, October 2017

I don’t teach woodworking classes very often, although I usually say yes when someone asks me to. The picture at left is from a series of blog posts written by one of the guys in my most recent class at Marc Adams School of Woodworking.

You can read the entire series of posts on Lumberjocks. It’s a great description of both the school and my efforts as an instructor. Of course I’m going to tell you it was a great week, so I encourage you to take a look at what one of the participants has to say.

I always consider it an honor to be asked to teach at MASW. If you’ve never been to a class at Marc Adams you should add that to your bucket list. Next year marks the school’s 25 year anniversary as the premier woodworking school in the USA. I think of it as Disneyland for woodworkers; the staff knows their stuff, are always friendly and helpful, and the equipment and facility can’t be beat. And there is a soft-serve ice cream machine in the cafeteria. Click here to visit the MASW website

Gustav Stickley Poppy Table-class to be held in April 2018 at MASW

Next year I will be teaching a week-long class in April on building a reproduction of the Gustav Stickley Poppy Table. It is one of my favorite pieces of furniture, and this promises to be a fantastic week. This post also talks about this table, and my construction of it for a magazine article way back when. I received more feedback and pictures from readers of their own versions than any other magazine project. There is a place in your house where this will fit right in, and your significant other will likely tell you that you need to build one.

Registration for school alumni is already open. Registration for the general public opens December 1, 2017.

If you want to join me for this class, I suggest you register as soon as you can; space is limited and classes often sell out.
