Dovetailing Course at West Dean, Available to Book Now!
With one weekend dovetailing course just ended, the next one is available to book now. It's on the 5th - 7th December 2014 at the wonderful West Dean College and can be booked here https://www.westdean.org.uk/CollegeChannel/ShortCourses/Courses/CourseSubCat.aspx?group=wcm
If you are thinking about coming, don't leave it too late as the last course was booked up inside 4 weeks.
The course is priced at £239 (£227 if you book on line). It includes all materials as well dinner on the first night and lunch on the next two days as well as plenty of tea and coffee. You'll come away with a fine dovetailed box and a couple of pounds heavier!
Here's the class of 2012 with their boxes.
The 2011 class looking pleased, I think!
This years class who did very well in just two days.
These are the boxes from this year, all complete with their tilting spalted beech lids.
Although the course involves making a dovetailed box it is actually a lesson in working accurately with razor sharp tools. This will hopefully lift those attending to another level for all their woodworking.
