Student Work–Phil Keppel

The Pennsylvania Dressing Table was my second woodworking class with Lonnie Bird. This table posed several challenges to me as a woodworker, namely shaping the cabriole legs and carving the feet. Lonnie provided excellent instruction and assistance as required to make this project the most interesting piece of furniture that I have ever made.

New challenges in woodworking are always fun and Lonnie has a unique way of explaining the many steps as he has completed all of those many times as an instructor and professional builder of period furniture.
