About this Event

In support Basingstoke Green Week we'll be creating an intricate coffee table using only reclaimed timber. Each stage of the process will be covered in detail over seven days between 10-2pm. By the end of the week you'll have the knowledge of which tools, materials, products and skills are required to create your very own environmentally friendly project.

Mon 23rd - Prepping Reclaimed Timber. Transforming rough timber into clean square stock is the essential first step in almost any project.

Tues 24th - Laminating and sizing timber. Laminating (gluing) timber is a cost effective way of producing larger pieces to work with when the size you need isn’t available,

Wed 25th - Cleaning. After laminating timber will most likely require a bit of clean up and possibly some resawing before further lamination.

Thurs 26th - Final glue up. This session will use a variety of techniques and tools to make sure the measuring and marking are precise so that the timber is of the right size and perfectly square.

Fri 27th - Turning The Legs. Using the lathe to demonstrate how effective and easy this machine can be to create beautifully turned legs.

Sat 28th - Constructing The Table. Using various clamping techniques and offering useful tips on how to minimise the cleanup before the final stage.

Sun 29th - The Perfect Finish. We will be demonstrating a range of hand and power sanding tools that will give the best surface for the application of various finishes. Today will cover everything you need to know to get the perfect end result.
