Introduction to Furniture Making
In this course students will build fundamental woodworking skills, culminating in a single project – a side table. This course is paced for those new to the craft of woodworking and covers basic woodworking tools and machines, their use and fundamental processes and joinery. Students will make their table from a provided design. Through demo, lecture and most importantly by you making, students will gain the experience and confidence to complete future works. Safe use of the tools is heavily emphasized throughout the process as we learn to operate machinery. Students will employ the foundational mortise and tenon joint in the creation of their tables. This class is designed to empower those new to woodworking through the creation of a beautiful and functional table made by hand.
Students will purchase materials following the first class. Minimal work outside of scheduled class time may be required. Recommended for beginners, open to all.
