A note from Terre Morrison, instructor of Furniture Essentials: The Shaker Table

Woodworking takes patience, consistency and practice, but understanding the tools and techniques allows even a beginner to make a simple and elegant piece. In my class, Furniture Essentials: The Shaker Table, I teach how to safely handle the essential power tools you will need to begin your woodworking adventure, while creating an authentic, New England-style Shaker table. I teach the techniques that will put you on the path to make quality furniture from the idea to the mill to the finished product, every step of the way.
