In November 2009 I was able to attend two workshops at the Philadelphia Miniaturia: 'Shaker Chest of Drawers' by Pete and Pam Boorum, and 'Magic of the Drill Press' by Tom Walden. The focus in the workshops was on learning techniques on the table saw and the drill press. The photos below show the Shaker chest of drawers I made in Pete and Pam Boorum's class.
We learned to rip, crosscut, dado, rabbet and make finger joints using the table saw.
On the photo below Pam Boorum is showing us a trick with the table saw.
The last photo is one I came across last night while flipping through the pages of the March 2010 issue of Miniature Collector (I scanned it from the magazine, so the quality is not too good). It is a photo taken by Mary Kalisky during Tom Walden's class 'The magic of the Drill Press". Even though I was renamed 'Joyce' in the caption, I am the tall one standing in the middle.
