28 – 30 Sep: Table Making Course with Aaron Sterritt

Table Making Course

Come and create your own beautiful table from Scottish hardwood. This 3 day course encompasses both "Green Woodworking" techniques and contemporary furniture practices, which combined allow you to create a stunning table through enjoyable working processes. You will get your own hardwood table top and create either a centrepiece coffee table or a side table to sit pride of place in your home.

The wood available for this course is some absolutely stunning Scottish Elm or Spalted Beech from right here at Logie Timber. This wood had come from a woodland less than a mile away from the workshop! See picture's above to give you an idea of what Elm and spalted beech looks like.

This course will be split between the woodland workshop and an inside workshop. We are able to choose and adapt depending on the weather conditions at this time of year.
