Vic Tesolin and Steven Der-Garabedian – Title: Making A Beautiful Piece of Heirloom Furniture

All too often we can read an article or see a demonstration that covers cutting a single joint or how to do a technique but how do you go from that to a completed project? Vic Tesolin and Steven Der-Garabedian are going to build a curved front wall hanging cabinet right before your eyes in a series of demos throughout the weekend. They will start with design and lumber selection and take you through all the steps including applying finish and installing hardware. You will watch them cut case joinery and create a curved front door using forms and veneer. The best part is that the completed cabinet will be raffled off to one lucky attendee (that way Steve and Vic don’t fight about who will get the cabinet). Join Vic and Steve for the weekend for some woodworking fun and see just how easy it is to make a beautiful piece of heirloom furniture.
