  1. Count me in for this class.. You are just so amazing to watch plus you being a musician always have that hip humor going keeps me from getting bored.. Thanks William

  2. I took this class in person a few years ago, it was a lot of fun, and the chair turned out great. I want to build 3 more, but it’s been so long since the class that I can’t remember everything, so I’ll be first in line when this class goes on line. What a great reference. Thanks.

  3. Hello,
    Excited about the prospect of taking your online classes. I see there are currently 3 listed. Will they all be available in February as you stated about the Nakashima inspired chair in the previous post? Also, is that when cost will be released or have I missed it somewhere on your site?


    1. It hard for me to say exactly when the Online Nakashima Chair will be done. We’re making lots of changes to our shop to accommodate our filming schedule. We’re just about done with the remodel and will resume filming soon. I’ll keep you posted thru our newsletter. Thanks for your interest and will try to get this and many online classes out asap.

    2. thanks. with covid its appreciated an online class flr this Nakashima Chair. even though i did have my Moderna shots. safety for all is well respected.

    1. I will be finishing my last class next week and will be working on it. Hopefully soon. Thanks.


  4. Hi William:
    I really enjoyed making the Nakashima Inspired Chair. It was great to learn your special techniques to cut the compound angles and to carve the seat curves – something I would not have tackled on my own. I am looking forward to another class!
    Thanks again!

    1. Hi Len,

      Finish what we needed to and will be in production next week or so. Our target is Dec, 1, 2018 We need to finish up the G&G Coffee Table.


  5. Any update on when this online class will be available I see this thread started a year ago and the last update in October said Dec 1.


        1. I just have to do some color correction in editing and should be able to upload to the site. I’m not very teckie so I’m relying on someone else to do all the logistics. I’m hoping the Table class will be up by end of this month and the Nakashima chair will be in two months. Thanks for your patience. My new studio makes filming so much easier and the lighting helps with the clarity of the video.

          1. We’re starting production very soon. I hope to have it up before the new year. I’ll keep you posted. Thanks for your patience.


  6. Is the entire project video completed for the Greene & Greene inspired coffee table completed?
    Please inform me when the Nakashima Inspired chair be available.
    Thank You

  7. Not trying to sound like a jerk, but Oct 2018 you said “production to start in a week or two. Jan 2019 you said “in production”. August 2019 you said “color correction in editing” is all you lack. Then some how you moved backwards and in Nov 2019, you said ” starting production very soon…”

    Do you have a realistic, honest estimate of when this will be completed and made available to purchase?

  8. Nakashima chair has been “coming soon” for 2 1/2 years now. I take it that this is not the case.

    1. Ya I gathered that as well. Lol I’ve tried reaching out by email as well over the years and never got a response.

  9. I signed up especially for this class.
    Looks like a amazing opportunity to build a beautiful chair (chairs have always intimidated me) from someone who I follow regularly.

  10. When will these classes be finished and ready to purchase and watch??? Don’t understand why they are advertised but seem to never materialize??? Interested? YES! Put them up to purchase!
