Some people that are barely beyond baby steps in woodworking chose very complex designs, despite my warnings. Most understood that they wouldn't complete their table of the six weeks of the class, and they were okay with that.
During the first couple of classes - we used every single clamp in the shop.
One of the guys is actually making four tables, so he brought in wood to make all of the bases first, which are stacked up around the shop. Now the bases are finished - he's working on his tabletops.
With 16 students into different classes, the shop is getting really crowded!
