    This is an IN-PERSON CLASS.

    In this class we’ll cover several techniques for bending wood: steambending, bent lamination, and kerf bending. This fast-paced class will begin with a series of bending exercises during which students will gain experience with each technique. Then students will be guided through the process of making their own small bent-wood project: from design to jig making to finished project.

    All skill levels welcome. No prerequisites.

    Learn how to build your own small wall-hung cabinet from ash lumber in this intensive one-week class.  Over this week, the instructor will guide you through the design & building process, from ideation & drafting to joinery & assembly to finishing & mounting.
    Students will learn how to turn their ideas into shop drawings, and how to create a cut list from those drawings.  Examples of classic and popular wood joinery will be demonstrated for students to incorporate into their cabinet design.  Students will receive hands-on instruction on a variety of woodworking machines including the jointer, planer, table saw, band saw, routers, sanders, and more.
