This 8 week class introduces students to the woodshop and fundamentals of wood furniture making. Students will begin with rough lumber and build a small coffee table or side table, start to finish. We will explore wood as a material and learn about how its grain and cellular structure impacts your designs from technical and aesthetic viewpoints. The class includes significant training on our machines, with a focus on best practices and how the tools work for you.
This class meets Wednesday nights. Additionally, students are strongly encouraged to come to our open shop hours once a week to work on their projects. The cost of tuition includes access to our open shop hours, which are Tuesdays 2-8pm and Saturdays 12-6pm.
