ARENA

Vic Tesolin

A Box from Start to Finish
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 is going to build a dovetailed box before your eyes in a series of demos throughout the weekend. He will start with design and lumber selection and take you through all the steps including applying finish and installing hardware. Join Vic for the weekend and see just how easy it is to make a beautiful heirloom for someone special.
