Furniture Maker in the Making

Shop Class loves to see successes, and Ryan Turner is one of them. Like a lot of Shop Class patrons, Ryan started out in our beginner class. Not stopping there, Ryan went on to take joinery, hand tool workshop, turning and welding. He is pictured below completing Shop Classes Advanced Woodworking where he built a pair of James Krenov inspired sawhorses that incorporates a pegged half lap, through tenon with a wedge and a bridle joint.

Evidently, inspired by our beginners class where we make cutting boards, Ryan started producing uber cutting boards. Many of his designs incorporated Trompe L’oeil effects.
