Live Edge Slab Coffee Table (January 14 - Feb 4 &11)
5 consecutive Thursdays beginning January 14th (6:00 - 9:30pm)
Build your own coffee table by hand that will stand the test of time from beautiful local hard woods milled right here in the Ottawa Valley.
The intermediate level course is taught by the Ottawa City Woodshop’s co-founder and NaCoille Studio's Matt Wallace. If you’ve seen Matt’s work, you know the beautiful pieces he produces and that you’re in for a treat. If you haven’t feast your eyes on his latest.
Matt emphasizes using all local materials and a variety of local hardwood slabs will be available for your selection. Over 5 consecutive Thursdays, you will go from learning basic woodworking theory, to choosing your own slabs and design styles, right through to creating a finished piece all by hand.
You’ll be choosing from a section of locally felled and salvaged hardwood slabs (mostly Maple). Each slab comes from logs that have been felled locally by one of the arborists we work with. The cost of the course includes both the top and a wooden base (designs to be discussed together).
Prior experience in woodworking or hand tools is an asset. Couples or teams (of 2 max) are welcome to work together on the same table.
*Courses are non-refundable but are transferable to another person. Please make sure they work with your schedule.
