Anyone who has read finewoodworking knows Michael Fortune. He is a contributing editor and has written dozens of articles for FWW. I've arranged for him to come teach a 1 day class for the members of SEMIWW to be held at Dave Zaret's shop. The topic is jigs and fixtures and covers all the jigs and fixtures Michael has made and used in his 45 years of furniture making. The date is October 28th from (9am-4:30-5pm) Michael has asked us to limit the number of attendees to 15 which will be on a first come basis.The cost is $100 and will include lunch. I was lucky enough to do a 4 month internship in Michael's shop in 2004 and one of the things I did while there was to copy many of the jigs and fixtures he has and uses on each machine. I've assisted or co-taught around 20 class with Michael at Marc Adams and am always impressed with the way he teaches and makes the class worthwhile for beginners to advanced woodworkers. I've taken classes at various schools around the country and know that every time you get a chance to spend time with one of the masters it takes your woodworking to a new level. Jay will be sending out an e-mail today with Michael's description of the class so if you're interested keep an eye out as I think to spots will fill quickly. I'm also working with Michael to schedule some more 1 or 2 day classes next year.
You can see Michael's work at Michael C. Fortune .com and my work at williamwellsfurniture.com

While we are at capacity right now you are more than welcome to post your interest in the even we have a cancellation.
