Next Steps in Furniture Making

Mason McBrien
June 15-26

This course is an excellent follow up for those who have taken Basic Woodworking. Each student designs and builds a small, simple casepiece or table with a single drawer in order to consolidate previously learned skills and acquire new ones.

With an emphasis on precision and efficiency, Mason reviews the essentials of hand-cut joinery and the use of hand tools such as planes and scrapers for surface preparation. In addition, he introduces standard machine-joinery techniques that apply to casework and tables. These include miter joints, box joints, mortise and tenons, and inserted tenons made variously with the router, table saw, band saw, and Festool Domino. Finally, Mason teaches participants how to construct and fit traditional, hand-dovetailed, inset drawers for their projects.

Mason McBrien has combined the roles of instructor and facilities manager at the Center since 2011, while still finding time to accept commissions for furniture and wood turning. After years of self-employment building custom furniture, museum installations, and historic garden architecture in New Hampshire, Mason enrolled in the Center’s 2007-2008 Nine-month Comprehensive and subsequently was awarded a Studio Fellowship. His work has been published in Fine Woodworking and in Lark Books’ 500 Tables (2009) and 500 Cabinets (2010).

Open to intermediate woodworkers, including anyone who has taken Basic Woodworking.
