Chattanooga Woodworking Academy Makes Impressive Showing at Maker Fair

The Chattanooga Woodworking Academy made an impressive showing at the Chattanooga Mini Maker Faire held at the Tennessee Pavilion on September 19.  The list of one-of-a-kind items displayed there included a walnut bed with a hand-carved Eagle headboard, a heart pine bed made from antique yellow pine reclaimed from the Union Gospel Mission building in Chattanooga built in 1890; highboy chests, a butcher block table, carved wooden spoons, hand-made chairs with hand-weaved seats, a chestnut kitchen cabinet, cutting boards and coat racks.  Responses from the attendees were enthusiastic and complimentary.  The touch and feel of solid wood, well-fit joinery, and beautiful finish drew exclamations of surprise and appreciation from everyone.   We love it!  This is our passion.  I am so proud of our students.  They are becoming true craftsmen, dedicated to excellence in woodworking.  It only gets better from here.
