On Columbus day weekend I taught a live-edge furniture class at Snow Farm, a reputable New England based craft school located in the picturesque Berkshire mountains of Western Massachusetts. My six students faced a challenging task, to design and build furniture that presents a strong live-edge character, and to do so just in two and a half days of work. The weather was mostly nice and the food was amazing (which is so important for energizing both teachers and students) plus, I was very fortunate to have furniture maker & woodturner, Heather Dawson, as my assistant and co-teacher. Together we helped our students design and build a few tables and one bookshelf top. As you will see in the following entries, the combination of live-edge slabs and turned furniture parts can look pretty cool.

One of my students brought a cut off from a cherry tree that showed pretty nice grain and other surprises which I will show in future entries.
