Student Work–Tom Hollis

Lonnie’s classes continually challenge me to develop new skills and the Massachusetts blockfront chest class was no exception.  The blockfront chest is a beautiful piece of furniture and I learned how to construct the sliding dovetails to attach the top, how to create beading around the drawer openings, and techniques for creating the blockfront.  This was a relatively complex piece of furniture to create, but with Lonnie’s instruction and guidance I was able to accomplish it. I am very excited about the results and I had a wonderful time in the class, spending the week with fellow woodworkers and making new friends. ~ Tom Hollis
