What you'll do

You will first pick out a piece of tree slab brought home from the local saw mill for your table top. Then Jo will share with you what she looks for while she is harvesting trees for the legs and how she goes about harvesting her material from the local woodlands. Next you will be guided thru the process of building and designing out your very own one of a kind sturdy rustic table using some very simple and basic building techniques. Some tools will be used such as a hammer, drill and saw. No prior experience is necessary. You just have to make sure your table will fit into your vehicle. A typical workshop lasts 4-41/2 hours. All wood, nails and tools are provided.the healthy snack provided. Please note--if you have a date that you would like to do a workshop and it is not on my calendar, then message me and see if we can put that date on the calendar for you. Also, there is a slight additional cost for two people coming to build one table. After all, you are both receiving a lot of knowledge and enjoying a healthy snack.

I am a woods-woman and in the world of rustic builders I am known as The Willow Woman. I live on 12+ acres in the beautiful Smoky Mountains where I build all my own furniture for indoors and out. Over the years I have shown my work at the premier rustic furniture show of Adirondacks and have been published in a book on how to weave bark into a hanging lampshade. I have built a rustic pavilion for developers along with one of a kind arbors. I love to teach and share my passion for trees with others. I have been hired many time to work children within the school system and summer programs.
