On November 16th—20th I attending the Intro to furniture building class at the Vermont Woodworking School.

It was a 4 day school about 8 hours a day. I built a Shaker Cherry Side Hall Table while there. The shop is an old restored barn. It has radiant heat, 3! Saw Stop table saws with one of them dedicated to dados. I guess it’s a pain on those to change over the blades to dados. The equipment there is crazy. I could become a member and use the shop on Tuesdays and Thursdays for $99 a month after having completed the class, but I am a 3 hour drive from there so that is not going to happen. Anyway enjoy the photos if you chose to check them out.
Here is a link to the photos and descriptions.

This really looks like a wonderful place to get some training. They certainly have plenty of equipment and I’m sure that you learned a lot. Congratulations.
