Description

“Got the blues? Join us at the North Carolina Furniture School in Farmville NC for a hands-on class to learn how to fabricate a cool plywood lap steel guitar using a combination of digital and traditional tools. You’ll use VCarve Pro software to learn the decision-making process behind this design, and be introduced to advanced toolpathing techniques including merged toolpaths, 2-sided machining, and using multiple bits.

Everyone in the class will build their own lap steel, with three optional resin-inlaid fret marker designs…stars, playing card suits, or Grateful Dead inspired dancing bears. Throughout the class options will be discussed for how the design might be modified for future builds.

ShopBot Basic training or equivalent is required, and all tools and materials will be supplied.
