Workshop Description

Class #30

Build a Hall Table

Mike Stapleton

October 29 & 30 | 9 - 4

Initially designed for wheelchair accessibility, this table has a unique method of integrating “ballast” into the leg & foot works that can be used in building any table/workbench where both stability and clearance are desired. The steel can remain exposed for an “industrial” look or concealed. Tactics applied include glue-ups, mortising, off-the-shelf hardwood or softwood, GRKs, beveling, and more. The table will be “knock-down” using Mike’s patented Threaded Metal Tenons™. Table height, top size and materials can vary. Drawings can be found at (Project #114). This class is suitable for beginners yet challenging even for Master Woodworkers. Mike will contact students to discuss desired table dimensions, wood species and other materials.

Mike Stapleton is a retired log home builder where he also performed the finish trim, built custom rustic stair systems, railings, mantels, frames, built-in shelving, beds and other home furnishings for his construction clients. Mike offers woodworking and SketchUp-for-Woodworking hands-on courses and is developing a series of online woodworking tutorials. Mike specializes in "lite" rustic and frequently incorporates aesthetic and/or structural metal into many of his woodworking projects including his recently patented “Threaded Metal Tenons™”
