Registration Now Open for 2019 Summer/Fall Classes

Registration opens at 10 a.m. today (January 21, 2019) for classes during the second half of 2019. Note that the registration form now requests (but does not require) a phone number. It would be helpful to provide that (and to double-check your email address); we’ve had a few emails bounce back…and if I can’t get in touch with a student after repeat attempts, I have to cancel the registration – which I hate to do. Thanks in advance.

If you’ve any questions, shoot me an email at covingtonmechanicals@gmail.com (please do not send questions about classes to the LAP help desk).

    You folks generally seem to be thoughtful and careful people, so if I am off base please ignore. I found it a little jarring that you used Jennie Alexander’s name in the title of one of your classes. Jennie is well known in the woodworking community and using her name to advertise a class seems a bit exploitative unless you had/have explicit permission from her and her family. Calling this a “post and rung chair” would surely get the idea across and avoid appropriating Jennie’s reputation to sell a class.

      Lost Art Press is working with Jennie’s family and woodworking friends to publish a new edition of “Make a Chair from a Tree,” and this chair is her design. So it seemed inappropriate to me to not credit her.
