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.  This is a small class size of four students total, allowing for in-depth instructor attention.

Students will explore wood as a material and learn about how its grain and cellular structure impacts their 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 Tuesday & Wednesday nights.
