Mortise & Tenon 2018 Schedule

The following is the list of events we will be participating in this year.

Issue Four Packing Party – March 23rd - 24th

This time around we have another bunch of people joining us for the big packing party for Issue Four. Slots all filled by now but we recommend you get on the waiting list if you have genuine interest in joining us (you never know what may come up). This will be the first party in our new timber frame workshop. We will be wrapping mags, filling ourselves with delicious food, and communing over craftsmanship. Read about the previous packing parties here.

Port Townsend School of Woodworking – April 23rd - 27th: “Table From Rough Boards”

I will be teaching a five-day class as an introduction pre-industrial (hand-tool-only) table making. We will be building a taper-legged table with a breadboard top and a drawer. Last I heard there were only a few spots left. You can sign up for the class here.  

Lie-Nielsen Workshop - June 16th - 17th Workshop: “Build a Table with Hand Tools”

This is a hand tools meat-and-potatoes kind of class - an introduction to the hand-tool-only approach to building a table. I’ll bring period originals along for students to examine to help inform their working tolerances. The goal is to show how to work with pre-industrial efficiency. Sign-up for the workshop here.

Lie-Nielsen Open House – July 13th - 14th

Always a highlight of the year. Come hang out with like-minded hand tool fanatics. No cover charge. Also, join us for the Saturday evening lobster dinner. Maine, hand tools, lobster, and beer... What more could you ask for? More info here.

Leonard’s Mills Living History Days Event – Early October

Every year my family interprets 1790s rural Maine life. I will have my portable Nicholson bench and a full chest of tools to demonstrate 18th-century cabinetmaking all weekend. More info here.
