Carriage Clock


August 21 ~ 25, 2017 Monday ~ Friday  9:00 AM ~ 5:00 PM

Instructor: Phil Lowe

Level: Beginner / Intermediate

Tuition: $750.00 Plus Materials

Carriage clocks were early timepieces that could be easily transported. This workshop is a great opportunity to build this classic and to work along side one of the countries premier woodworkers. Past students say that watching Phil at the layout board, where he will develop the design and proportions of the case, is worth the price of the class. After the layout the stock list will be developed and hardware determined. In the shop students will prepare lumber and begin construction. Throughout the class Phil will give pointers on the accuracy in machining of wood and you can marvel at the control and precision he can obtain with simple hand tools. This class is also great way to learn about the router table and running straight moldings with the shaper. Be one of the first to build this heirloom with Phil.
