N. American + Lift & Slide Door Workshop

At Alpine, we teach woodworkers from across the world how to build beautiful, high-performing Lift & Slide doors. When not running Alpine sessions, instructor Joe Calhoon is a master joiner with over 30 years of experience crafting Euro-style Lift & Slide doors and Tilt & Turn windows. This workshop will get you comfortable and experienced with all aspects of building Lift & Slide doors, from machining and joinery to sourcing components, finishing and glazing, and understanding how to implement this process at your shop.

This workshop's topics include but are not limited to: stock making (lamination), making and layout of parts, finishing, storm-proofing, milling and joining frame parts, milling sash balances, installation of hardware, gaskets, threshold and glass. As with any Alpine workshop, the limited session sizes allow for the workshop topics to be custom adjusted to fit the group's needs and interests.

Our next Lift & Slide Door sessions will be held from:

May 3 ‐ 6, 2018 (Thu ‐ Sun) - Complete

Our next Tilt-and-Turn Window sessions will be held from:
