Mike Pekovich to Teach at Marc Adams School
At Fine Woodworking, we’ll go anywhere in North America to find the right author for any given topic. We set a high bar for the quality of information, and readers appreciate that. That’s what makes it hard for staffers to get articles into the magazine. Although most of us are accomplished woodworkers in our own right, we pick our spots.
Our art director, Mike Pekovich, is something of an exception. As insightful and skillful as anyone who has written for FWW, Mike already has 10 articles to his name, and a number of video workshops. His reputation as a patient and effective teacher is also growing. To that end, we give Mike as much time as we can to get out on the road and teach classes.
If you have time to go to Marc Adams School of Woodworking this summer, you’ll find Mike teaching two amazing classes:
MEET US ON THE ROAD
Our contributing editors and authors travel the country holding classes and workshops. Consult our schedule for information on where we’ll be next.
Mike is a longtime student of the Arts & Crafts style, and a master of its exposed joinery. You’ll come away with a beautiful, tile-topped entryway/sofa table, but more importantly you’ll get all of Mike’s tricks and tips for cutting joinery precisely and efficiently, using a mix of machines and hand tools.
One of Mike’s other missions is spreading the joy of hand tools, and he knows that true sharpness is the gateway. He turns this much-debated topic into a series of can’t-fail steps for chisels, plane blades, and even the (formerly) tricky scraper. In one day, you’ll become a hand-tool user for life.
As you can tell by now, I can’t recommend Mike enough. By the way, he’ll also be teaching at the next FWW Live event, August 8-11, in New Haven, CT.
You'll learn to cut beautiful exposed joints like these, useful on all types of furniture.
In six days with Mike, you'll build one of these beautiful tile-topped entryway/sofa tables in the Arts & Crafts style.
In Mike's one-day hand-tool workshop, you will experience true sharpness, and find out exactly how to get there every time.
