WHAT: Cerritos College's Students' Association of Woodworkers will present guest speaker Kelly Mehler on Thursday, November 2 at 7 p.m. Mehler's professional woodworking career spans three decades. His work is characterized by the use of classic designs that emphasize the inherent beauty, natural colors, and grain patterns of hardwoods. Mehler’s trademark furniture pieces often feature strikingly figured and matched wood that has been carefully air dried and sawed from a single tree with his work being heavily influenced by the furniture of the Shakers.
Mehler is the author of "The Tablesaw Book" (1992/2002, Taunton Press). He is featured in two Fine Woodworking video/DVDs: "Build a Shaker Table with Kelly Mehler," and "Mastering Your Tablesaw." Mehler has contributed numerous articles to Fine Woodworking magazine, and has been published in many other woodworking publications. Additionally, Mehler participates in speaking engagements throughout the United States for woodworking guilds and for "The Woodworking Shows."
