This multi-week, evening 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 & Thursday nights. Additionally, students are strongly encouraged to come to our open shop hours to work on their projects. The cost of tuition includes access to our open shop hours, which are Tuesdays 2-8pm and Sundays 12-6pm.
