Build A Table AUGUST 2016

Description: The table saw is an amazing tool that enables even novice wood workers to cut perfectly square joints, miters that are exactly 45 degrees, and repeat cuts of a set length or width. In addition, it can cut dadoes and grooves in the exact position that the operator has determined. This class will use the table saw to make a parson's table, including cutting stock to width and length and mitering the legs to make a square splined joint. We will use dado cutters to make the splined joint as well as the groove for the top, and cut the tongue that will fit the top to the table. Finally, we will use a tapering jig to cut the taper on the legs. If time allows we will also apply finish to the table using the Asylum's spray booth. Students will leave the class with a greater understanding of what is possible to accomplish with the table saw and more familiarity with how to use it skillfully.  *PLEASE NOTE: Tool testing is NOT included in this course, and needs to be arranged separately by each student.* Prerequisites: This class is suitable for beginners. If you have not tested on the tablesaw, please contact instructor after enrolling. What to Bring:  Students should wear shop appropriate clothes - closed-toe shoes, no dangly jewelry or straps, and long hair should be tied back.  Event Time: Session 1: Thursday, August 11, 4:00pm-8:00pm Session 2: Thursday, August 18, 4:00pm-8:00pm Session 3: Thursday, August 25, 4:00pm-8:00pm Session 4: Thursday, September 1, 4:00pm-8:00pm   Instructor Biography: Tam Sicay-Perrow has a BFA in Product Design and Sculpture from Savannah College of Art and Design.

Closely built two families and triple-deckers fill the city to house its dense and diversified people. Today, Somerville is a mix of blue-collar families, young professionals, college students and recent immigrants. It is known for its large number of city squares which help mark neighborhood boundaries. Among those most active today are Davis Square, Union Square, Ball Square, Teele Square and Magoun Square.

In its earliest history Somerville served as the grazing lands for the residents and farmers of Charlestown and had only a few scattered permanent settlements. This is a sharp contrast to the Somerville of today which is comprised of 4.1 square miles of residential homes and commercial properties.

Somerville was established as a town in 1842 and its population grew in leaps and bounds from that time forward. Many of the new settlers worked in the brick yards producing as many as 1.3 million bricks a year by hand or 5.5 million with a new press. At its highest point in production the town was turning out 24 million bricks being made in 12 brick yards in the city.

By the end of 1851, heavy industry was prominent here and was soon followed by rolling and slitting mills, iron works and manufacturers of steam engines and boilers. With the establishment of the street car lines, Somerville's population again exploded growing to six times its number between 1870 and 1915. The scale of the meat packing industry earned Somerville the reputation as the Chicago of New England. The city's population reached its peak during the Second World War when almost 106,000 people were said to create a density greater than that of Calcutta!
